The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper and mentor of Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Mr Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has confirmed that the Deputy Minister for Roads and Highways, Mr Anthony Abayifaa Karbo is mentioned in Anas' latest expose on sports corruption.
He said but for the breach of confidentiality by the Presidency in running to town on Tuesday, the Tigereye cum BBC team working jointly on the documentary had scheduled to interview Karbo on Wednesday - May 23.
Indications are that the police Criminal Investigations Department (CID) intends to invite Mr Karbo in connection with investigations into allegations of influence peddling and defrauding by false pretense against the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Mr Karbo is said to have been mentioned in the documentary by Mr Nyantakyi, who said Karbo was going to facilitate the "access" to the presidency which was to come at a cost to the investors.

"So he [Karbo] knew, the investigation is incomplete and we will still interview him by all means. The fourth person will also be interviewed," Mr Baako added.
When Mr Baako was asked about the fourth person, he said he cannot make disclosures which is not coming from the project team themselves.
"If you realise I'm always economical with the details, it is not fair to them, the little I think I can put, I put out," he said.
Responding to the question whether Deputy Chief of Staff Mr Francis Asenso Boakye had also seen the video, Mr Baako said: "he doesn't have to see it, he is not captured on the tape, his name pops up in an email correspondence, so all he has to react to is the email and he has it, the email correspondence, those relevant to the Presidency has been sent there long ago."
"The day the President watched the video, the Vice President watched the video, the following day email correspondence was sent," Mr Baako added.
