Anas video: I wasn’t taking bribe – Eddie Doku

Former Chairman of the Black Stars B Management Committee Eddie Doku has denied reports suggesting he’s neck deep in football rot following an investigative piece that captured him allegedly receiving bribe.

Per the said video, Mr Doku is seen receiving an unspecified amount of money from an undercover reporter from Tiger Eye PI to ensure Patrick Razak got more minutes on the pitch for the Black Stars B team.

Mr Doku takes the money, unwraps it and splits the cash into the left, right and back pockets of his trousers. He then hands the wrapping, which he has now crumpled, back to the undercover reporter.

However, the official has dismissed claims of any wrongdoing in the investigative piece by undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas indicating he’s instructed his Lawyers to take the matter up until he returns from an official assignment in Iceland.

Read the full statement:

Good Morning all. I normally do not encourage anything like this on this platform. But please allow me this once.

I am with the Black Stars in Iceland and received a video clip of myself in the Anas series receiving money in the open in front of the RFA office.

Please, it is not true what the caption says, that I am being bribed to influence the selection of Patrick Razak into the Black Stars B.

I am simply telling you, who serves as chairman, the truth is that I was not taking a bribe as the video seeks to portray. My lawyers are taking the matter up. I shall be back on Saturday, God willing. At least I owe you this.
