The former 1st Vice President of CAF and former FIFA council member is seeking a declaration that the visual images of him receiving money contained in Anas’ documentary – Number 12 – shown to the public on June 6, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre ( AICC) is defamatory.
The former football head is also seeking Punitive damages against Anas and Tiger Eye PI for defaming him.
Mr. Nyantakyi is also praying the court for a perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from further publishing the video.
The embattled former GFA boss was seen and heard in the undercover investigative piece describing how to make money from a proposed sponsorship deal from a supposed investor.
He also boasted of his relationship with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, suggesting the president and his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, were susceptible to bribery, and that the two could be influenced with $5 million and $3 million respectively.
Nyantakyi is currently being investigated by the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service over a charge of defrauding by false pretense.
