CID invites Anthony Karbo over Anas video

The Deputy Minister for Roads and Highways, Anthony Karbo, has been invited by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service for questioning.



Karbo’s invitation is in connection with the CID’s ongoing investigations into allegations of fraud against Kwesi Nyantakyi by President Akufo-Addo.

Citi News sources say Mr Karbo’s name came up in an undercover video by journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas which showed Kwesi Nyantakyi using President Akufo-Addo’s name to allegedly solicit a bribe from supposed potential investors.

The editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Kweku Baako, who is a mentor to Anas Aremeyaw Anas confirmed on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana that Anthony Karbo, who is also the Member of Parliament for Lawra constituency was mentioned in the film.

He said the investigative team had scheduled to interview Mr Karbo on Wednesday to comment on the aspect of the yet-to-be-released video where he was mentioned.

    “Karbo is mentioned, Karbo is the one scheduled to be interviewed on Wednesday, I don’t see why you are doubting that I’m saying this on a public record. Karbo is mentioned and he is aware that he’s been mentioned and he knew that Wednesday, we were to meet for the interview, so he would have watched.

    “If you are not being interviewed, you can’t watch the portion that concerns you, so he knew. He was scheduled to be interviewed on Wednesday, meaning, he would have had the opportunity to watch portions of where he was mentioned so that he can react, and that is part of the investigations, so, the investigation is incomplete and that’s what I say,” Kweku Baako said.

Details about the areas of the interrogation are yet to be made public.

President Akufo-Addo on Tuesday made a formal complaint at the CID against FA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi who was captured in Anas’ video allegedly soliciting a bribe from supposed foreign investors in the name of President Akufo-Addo, Vice President Bawumia and other top government officials.

Mr Nyantakyi cut short his trip to Morocco on Tuesday and returned to Ghana on Wednesday afternoon where he turned himself into the CID for questioning.

After almost 5 hours of questioning, Kwesi Nyantakyi was whisked away from the CID by some officers of the department to his whom where a search was conducted at his home and his mobile phones and laptops seized.

Kwesi Nyantakyi has since been granted bail.

The full Anas documentary has been scheduled to show at the Accra International Conference Center on Wednesday 6th June 2018.

Sources say top officials within the FA at regional and national levels were all captured in the video.

The GFA is expected to name lawyer Kweku Eyiah as interim FA President, as reports suggest Kwesi Nyantakyi will soon tender in his resignation from the post.
