Embattled President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi has been released on bail after subjecting himself to Police interrogation on Wednesday, Footy-Ghana.com has gathered.
The leader of the country’s football governing body has come under investigations following a complaint by the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo that Nyantakyi allegedly used his name and office fraudulently.
Ghana’s President is said to have been alarmed by claims made by the football chief after previewing excerpts of a yet-to-be released investigative work by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas on ‘Football and Politics’ dubbed ‘Number 12’.
Nyantakyi was out of the country Tuesday when the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police received the complaint and wanted to begin its work.
However, the GFA President touched down at the Kotoka International Airport at about 11:45am. With the guidance of officers, Nyantakyi made his way to the CID Headquarters in Accra to assist the Police in their investigations.
After spending close to five hours at the third floor of the CID Headquarters, the Police managed to move Kwesi Nyantakyi out of their premises at the blind side of media personnel present – it was about a few minutes to 5pm local time. Deputy Superintendent of Police, Sheilla Kessie Abayie-Buckman, the Director of Public Affairs succeeded in distracting journalists from hounding Nyantakyi as he got whisked away through a backdoor into a Toyota Hilux with registration number GP4649.
Though reports suggest the Police are enroute to the private residence of the GFA President for a search, close sources tell us he has been granted bail.
Kwesi Nyantakyi was at the CID Headquarters with his trusted lawyer Thaddeus Sorry.
