GFA premises declared a crime scene; sealed off by Police

The Ghana Police Service has declared the premises of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) a crime scene.

The public has been warned to stay away from the premises since the Police has started investigations into the activities of the GFA and its officers.

This follows the ‘Number 12’ exposé by Tiger Eye PI, an investigative video in which several football officials including the GFA President, Kwasi Nyantakyi were caught on camera taking money from undercover journalists to either influence a match, get their relative selected into one of the national teams or broker a sponsorship deal.

A statement issued by the Public Affairs Directorate of the Ghana Police Service, Friday, June 8, 2018, and signed by DSP Sheila Kessie Abayie-Buckman, said the police will provide twenty-four-hour security at the premises and further entreated the public to cooperate with the investigations.

The premises and offices of the GFA, understands, have been sealed off and remain inaccessible to the staff of the local football governing body and the public until further notice.
