YEN.com.gh brings you all the information gathered so far about development.
1. President Akufo-Addo orders for Kwesi Nyantakyi's arrest:
News broke on Tuesday afternoon President Akufo-Addo had ordered for the arrest of GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi. According to reports, President Akufo-Addo gave the order after watching Anas' latest exposé.
2. Kwesi Nyantakyi allegedly defrauded under false pretence:
According to Joy News' Gary Al-Smith, who claims to have watched the video, Kwesi Nyantakyi is seen in the video claiming that he has the presidency in his pocket.
Other reports also suggest that Nyantakyi actually asked for a bribe $8 million dollars from some investors using the name of President Akufo-Addo.
3. President's order cannot be carried out immediately:
Kwesi Nyantakyi himself is not in the country currently. As a member of CAF's Executive Committee, he is in Cairo attending meetings concerning CAF's representation at the upcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
However, reports YEN.com.gh is gathering suggest that Nyantakyi may cut his stay in Cairo short and return to Ghana to face the police.
4. No official response from GFA yet:
Officials of the GFA, including Communications Director, Ibrahim Saani Daara, have refused to comment on the development.
Neither has Nyantakyi officially responded to the situation.
5. What next for Nyantakyi?
Such cases of corruption take a long time to be determined and Kwesi Nyantakyi being a lawyer himself may have some tricks up his sleeves.
But if he is indeed found guilty, not only will his reputation be soiled but he may got spend a long time in jail.
Defrauding under false pretence is a second degree felony which has a 25 year sentence.
