The first wife of Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, Christine-Marie Nyantakyi has opened up for the first time on Anas’ Number 12 expose’ and FIFA’s lifetime ban handed to her husband.
Mrs Nyantakyi in an interview with Paul Adomako Okyere on Metro TV’s ‘Good Evening Ghana’ program disclosed how her husband out of desperation paid $100,000 to some people who assured him of stopping Anas’ Number 12 expose’ screening.
“Well, there’s information, and there’s truth in that information. Apparently, we became so desperate when we realized that all that they presented to us were false, so we tried to make some interventions, and they proposed that he pays some money. They proposed $150,000; my husband couldn’t afford it, so he gave out $100,000 dollars, and they came back to him and said the person says you need to add $50,000, and he said well, I don’t have it; that’s all that I have”, she disclosed.
On whether the $100,000 was paid back or not, Mrs Nyantakyi answered;
“They brought $40,000 first; and then, later on, they brought $60,000 dollars. I have not gathered the courage to watch the full video, because the small that I watched, I knew that the way he is talking; that is not my husband; something might have gone wrong”.
Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi after a thorough investigation by world football governing body, FIFA into Anas’ Number 12 expose’, handed him a lifetime ban from all football-related activities and a fine of $500,000/CHF500,000 on October 30, 2018.
