Ahmed’s identity was compromised by Honourable Kennedy Agyapong, MP for Assin Central, who revealed his identity, along with that of Anas, on his tv channel Net 2.

Fifa has released a statement today condemning the shooting and reiterating their support for journalists exposing corruption.

Anas and his team forwarded excerpts of their work to Fifa, which led to Nyantakyi being banned from Football for life.
