The Scam that Shut the GFA Down

In an exclusive interview with TV3, Anas indicated that Mr. Nyantakyi appeared experienced in scamming and rather gave him, Anas, tutorials on how to scam people including the institution Nyantakyi headed.

The embattled GFA boss was caught on camera scheming with the undercover journalist to defraud the Ghana Football Association and to also bribe their way through several contracts to eventually “take over” the country.
