According to a radio interview on Rainbow Radio and sighted on Ghanaweb.com, Dr. Martin Luther Obeng revealed in the exclusive conversation that his boss, Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, mobilized an amount of $100,000 to be given as ‘bribe’ to Anas.

Dr. Martin Luther Obeng went on to indicate that Anas’ lawyer was in the know of the said transaction. However, he failed to produce the name of the said lawyer.
The PRO added that at the right time, the name of the said lawyer would be put out for all to see.
After Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi’s alleged press statement claiming the $65,000 he received was not a bribe rather it was a reimbursement for his air and accommodation.
However, Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team have put out receipts of all air and accommodation expenses rubbishing the claims made by the embattled former GFA president.
Mr. Kwesi Nyantakyi, on May 22, was ordered to report himself to the Criminal Investigations Department in Accra to assist in investigations of alleged acts of misconduct brought against him.
Preliminary reports indicated that the FA boss defrauded some foreign investors using the names of the President and Vice President.
The investigative piece which started screening for free from June 6 has brought in its wake many issues as was predicted by the award-winning investigative journalist prior to the release of the documentary.
