Former Ghana Football Association (GFA) Boss, Mr.Kwasi Nyantakyi has revealed that Tiger Eye PI demanded a sum amount of $400, 000 from him to stop the airing of investigative piece dubbed 'Number 12'.

According to the embattled former CAF first Vice President, he was asked to pay a sum of money to stop the premiering of an investigative piece which he retorted that he has no amount to get the video edited.

An initial amount of $400,000 was requested from Nyanyakyi, later it was reduced to $150,000 to enable him to pay yet he could not afford, hence begun the promotion of the Anas expose.

"Tiger Eye PI was demanding $400,000 from me to stop premiering the video. Later it was reduced to $150,000 of which I said I cannot pay any amount to him that begins the hullabaloo", Nyantakyi told Oman FM in Accra.

Tiger Eye on June 6, however, went ahead to air the documentary that brought the nation and the football community worldwide to a standstill. British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) also aired the documentary a few days later after it had been shown in Ghana at the Acccra International Conference Center.

The Number #12 film revealed how Nyantakyi had misconducted himself and engaged in acts of “bribery and corruption,” for which the world football governing body, FIFA has banned him for life.
