YEN.com.gh understands that eight of them have been banned from all football-related activities for life.

The Deputy Minister of Youth and Sports, Curtis Perry Kwabla Okudzeto, who confirmed the decision of the investigations of Referees Association of Ghana (RAG), wrote “the RAG has concluded investigations on their (75) members captured in the Anas #Number12 Expose.

14 of them have been cleared of any wrongdoing. 51 of them have been banned for 10 years each whilst 8 have been banned for life. On track to get back the passion and sanctity of the game”

In June 2018, the Anas-led Tiger Eye PI premiered Number 12, a video which showed acts of corruption by football officials in Ghana.

It led to the resignation of Kwasi Nyantakyi from the offices of president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), West African Football Association (WAFA) and vice president of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

It was followed by his removal from the executive committee of FIFA and a 90-day suspension from all football activities, which was further extended by 45 days.
