Number 12: ‘Prominent’ lawyer tried bribing Anas – Kweku Baako

A well-known lawyer tried bribing investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to edit out the a scandalous findings against “a man” in the yet-to-be premiered Number 12 undercover documentary, which will expose a lot of rot at the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul-Malik Kweku Baako Jr., has revealed.

The documentary will be shown for the first time at the Accra International Conference Centre on 6 June 2018.

Speaking about the undercover piece, which took over two years to compile, Mr Baako Jr. told Randy Abbey on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana programme on Thursday, 17 May that: “Look, this one, this GFA one, there was an attempt to bribe him, OK”.

He said: “There was an attempt because there is a lawyer – and I’m sorry I won’t mention his name, of course, he may know it’s him, maybe he is watching us – who is close to Anas and who knew that this job was going on, and I think he went and did some ‘Okro mouth’, so, somebody now tries to give him money to go and give to Anas.

“The lawyer took the money and was scared to go and deliver it to Anas. So, eventually he [lawyer] had to go back to the man and say: ‘[I couldn’t deliver the bribe], take it’. But of course we have found out. He’s a lawyer, very good lawyer, prominent lawyer”, Mr Baako Jr. said.
