However,in a sharp rebuttal, Monday, Tiger Eye has described Nyantakyi's claims that he was asked to pay $150,000 by a third party representing Anas to drop the #number12 investigative piece, as a "complete fabrication".
"The claim that a third party made a demand of $150k for Anas is a complete fabrication, a figment of Mr. Nyantakyi's imagination and has no merit. We dare Mr. Nyantakyi to name this third party. In fact, Tiger Eye is willing to provide undercover support to assist him find this third party should he extend an invitation to us again.", they said.
They further dared Kwesi Nyantakyi who claimed his e-mail account was hacked on several occasions to provide evidence on the person who he claims 'hacked' his email to prove his case.
