Accra Hearts of Oak SC Board Member Alhaji Briamah Moro popularly known as Alhaji Akambi has been exonerated by an investigative body set up to unravel a bribery accusation levelled towards him, according to reports in the media.

Alhaji Akambi was accused of taking a GHC 200 before introducing Nkoranza Warriors Chief Executive Officer Kuuku Bartels to the Board Chairman Togbe Afede.

His situation was compounded by some section of the fans who had raised concerns that Alhaji Akambi had influenced the signing of Emmanuel Sarkodie from the Division One club.

He was later accused of accepting bribes from the Division One club, and further demanding a percentage on the transfer of the player should Hearts of Oak eventually sign him [Sarkodie]

The three-member committee is said to have finished with its work and handed over their findings to the Board.
