Zylofon Cash Premier League referee Samuel Sukah, was caught in the Anas expose as he accepted a bribe of GHC 2000 and a goat to rig the matchday 8 fixture in the GPL played on March 19 2017, between Asante Kotoko and Accra Hearts of Oak in favour of the Phobians.


Samuel Sukah became the talk of town after he awarded a controversial penalty in the 84th minute of the game for Hearts at the Accra Sports Stadium.

The decision left many shocked as a shot that struck the back of Kotoko defender Awudu Nafiu, was adjudged as a handball by Sukah resulting in the penalty.

Hearts scored from the resulting penalty and the game ended 1-0 in favour of the Phobians.

Despite massive outrage especially from Asante Kotoko after the game, he was cleared by the Referee Review Committee of any wrongdoing in the Super Clash.

Sukah who was recently banned 8 matches by the Disciplinary Committee was caught clearly on tape by investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
