Bailiff is on the heels of the investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI to serve them with the writ of the suit by the Former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Mr. Nyantakyi sued Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Tiger Eye PI for defamation on Friday June 29, 2018, at the Accra High Court but as at Tuesday, July 3, 2018, the bailiff was yet to locate the two entities, Anas and his company.

“We have not gotten Anas to serve him but we shall service him within the week”, a Communications Team Member of Kwesi Nyatakyi, Sheikh Tophic Sienu, told Prime News Ghana in an interview on Tuesday.

The embattled former GFA Boss is seeking a declaration that the visual images of him[Kwesi Nyantakyi] receiving money contained in defendants (Anas Aremeyaw Anas) investigative piece titled #No. 12 shown to the public on June 6, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre ( AICC) and subsequent ones in various parts of the country, is defamatory.

Mr. Nyantakyi is thus seeking punitive damages against defendants for defamation.

Additionally, he is praying the court for a perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from further publishing the video or premiering it.

The embattled former President of the GFA, Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is currently being investigated by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service for using President Akufo-Addo’s name for influence peddling, stated that the President is open to pocketing a $5 million bribe, claiming President Akufo-Addo sold most of his property to finance the 2016 election and as such was broke.

Sheikh Sienu said “we know the offices and we know some of his workers and staffs so he will be serve”.

“If we don’t get him…we shall summon him through a public platform …through a media publication because as at the Friday that we filed, we were not able to serve them”.
