Anas catches Nigeria coach taking bribe to influence player selection

- Anas Aremeyaw Anas has released the latest extension of his 'Number 12' exposé, which captures corruption in Nigeria Football

- Top football coach, Salisu Yusuf, who manages the Super Eagles Team B was caught on camera taking cash to fix players

Award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has released yet another exposé, this time centered on corruption in Nigerian football.

In a three minute 38-second video shared on BBC, the undercover journalist exposed how Nigerian Team B coach, Salisu Yusuf, took money to influence his player selection.

The video forms an extension of Anas’ 'Number 12' documentary which brought to light the rots and corruption in Ghana football.

The latest exposé captures the Super Eagles coach reportedly receiving a sum of $1000 and agreeing to include two players in Nigeria’s team for last year’s CHAN tournament.

Nigeria made it to the final of the tournament, before losing 4-1 to eventual winners Ghana in the final.

But the latest exposé by Anas is bound to bring into disrepute the integrity of coach Yusuf, who is highly respected in Nigeria.

The 56-year-old tactician has, however, refuted allegations that the money he took was a bribe, insisting it was only a gift.

According to him, the money did not even influence his player selection and so cannot be regarded as a bribe.

He explained that the cash given him was $750 and not $1,000, as reported by Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team.

Anas’ 'Number 12' has already covered African countries like Ghana and Kenya, with more expected to come in the coming months.
