Deputy Roads and Highways Minister, Anthony Karbo has told the police he has no knowledge of attempts to use the President’s name to fraud ‘investors’.
Karbo was mentioned by the President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, who is under investigations by the Criminal Investigation Department for defrauding by false pretence.
Mr Karbo, who is also the Lawra MP, is being treated as a suspect after Nyantakyi, who was recorded by an undercover journalist, allegedly said Karbo had told him that with specific amounts, he can help some ‘investors’ see the president.
Karbo responded to a police invitation to interrogate him over the alleged accusation by Nyantakyi.
He was at the Criminal Investigation Department in Accra in the company of his lawyer, Gary Nimako, and spent 20 minutes writing a statement and responding to queries.
The police are, however, treating Karbo as a person of interest and not a suspect.
The investigations began after the President reported the alleged conduct of Nyantakyi to the police after viewing the video done by Anas.
The award-winning journalist, whose work has led to the sacking of more than 20 magistrates and circuit court judges, is set to premier his latest work at the Accra International Conference Centre on June 6, 2018.
