Kwaku Baako Jnr, The Chief Editor of the New Crusading Newspaper has described the former president of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi’s media battle with Anas as “entering into a minefield”.
“Issuing this statement ahead of time and the kind of thing he said, and the email communication available that I had scrutinised, he is just entering the minefield or stepped into a quicksand. I am telling you”, Baako said.
On Monday Mr. Nyantakyi in a press statement denied all wrongdoing in his involvement with, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and the Tiger Eye PI team.
Mr. Baako challenged the embattled former GFA boss to name the individual he claims came to him prior to the premier of the investigative documentary to extort money from him.
“On Newsfile three weeks ago I didn’t mention any figure, I didn’t mention any name, but I mentioned the fact that people made efforts through a lawyer to compromise this particular project. It is important that once he has decided to go along that path he mentions the third party, it is is a good opportunity to identify the third party, name the third party. Identify the third party lets now put the third party on the spot.
“Look Ghana is going to be sweet. It is going to be a useful exercise and I am all for it. As soon as the third party is identified, I will make the evidence available…on air for everybody to listen; for Ghanaians to judge for themselves,” Mr. Baako added.
Mr. Nyantakyi also claimed that his email account was hacked, but Mr. Baako said it is easy to verify that claim and identify the supposed hackers.
He said it will be in the best interest of the former GFA boss to disengage himself from such comments.
“I can tell you that it is not going to be in his interest because there will no be such evidence. Even if there was hacking, there will no be such evidence pointing to the people he suspects.
“If I were him, I will emphasis on the ongoing official enquiry as the basis to deal with it. It is also his right to go to court,” he said.
