The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, has officially written to the management Tiger Eye PI for a copy of the documentary on football corruption.

Dubbed “When misconduct and greed become the norm”, Number 12, lived to its billing as a blockbuster when it was premiered at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC) on Wednesday, June 6, 2018.

The Director-General of the CID, Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP), Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah told Graphic Online on Thursday that although the management of Tiger Eye PI had promised to give the CID a copy after the premier, the police had sent a letter requesting a copy.

Due process

She said upon taking delivery of the documentary, the police would invite the President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi for the investigations into the complaint lodged by Ptresident Nana Akufo-Addo against him to continue.

She said together with Mr Nyantakyi, the investigators would watch the documentary during which clarifications and other issues would be discussed as part of the investigations.


On May 24, this year, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo reported Mr Nyantakyi to the police for investigation after he (the President) had watched portions of the latest investigative work by the ace investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, dubbed: “Number 12”. 

Mr Nyantakyi was seen in the video allegedly using the names of the President and the Vice-President to extort millions of dollars from some supposed investors. 

He was granted bail after two visits to the CID headquarters pending the premiering of the documentary.
