Martin Amidu shies away from Nyantakyi’s prosecution?

The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, has indicated that his office will not be investigating the alleged cases of corruption leveled against the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Mr. Amidu said the case involving the GFA is already being investigated by the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.

His comments were in relation to calls from a section of the public demanding that his outfit handles the alleged corrupt cases that have been exposed at the country's football governing body.

The GFA has come under the spotlight in the last few days after an exposé by investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, uncovered certain rots and corruption bring perpetrated within its ranks.

Some top officials of the FA were captured on camera using their offices to engage in various acts of misconduct and misdealing.

The likes of FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi and Greater Accra regional FA chairman Eddie Doku were captured on video receiving monies to compromise their duties.

This led to many Ghanaians calling for the Office of the Special Prosecutor to handle the case, instead of the CID.

But Martin Amidu insists his office will not investigate the GFA since the Association is already being investigated by the CID.

"It is not for my office to investigate the case that is already under investigation by the CID. No I would not do that,” he said in an exclusive interview with Accra-based Onua FM.

The CID is equally a state mandated-body capable of its mandate,” the former Attorney-General added.

Meanwhile, the Government of Ghana has dissolved the Ghana Football Association following the scandalous revelations in the Anas exposé.

This was communicated in letter from the Presidency on Thursday.

The statement said all football related activities in the country have also been suspended with immediate effect.
