Eddie Doku denies #Number12 corruption claims, threatens legal action
Executive Committee Member of the Ghana Football Association, Eddie Doku, has denied taking bribe to influence player selection in any of the national teams.
The influential FA member was captured red-handed in Anas’ exposé receiving money and agreeing to influence game time for a player during last year’s 2017 WAFU Zone B tournament.
In the video, Doku took a bundle of cash and agreed to help Hearts of Oak winger Patrick Winger get much playing time during the tournament.
Having served as the Chairman of the Black Stars B management committee, he used his power to influence the technical handlers of the team to play Razak more.
Although the Razak became one of the tournament’s best performers, it has now been revealed that Doku benefited financially from the Hearts of Oak player’s participation.
However, Doku has denied taking any bribe of that sort, insisting the video portrayed a wrong message. He went on to threaten legal action against Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team.
Eddie Doku has however in a short statement on Thursday dismissed the allegations as untenable.
“Please, it is not true what the caption says, that I am being bribed to influence the selection of Patrick Razak into the Black Stars B,” he stated in the statement.
According to him, his lawyers are “taking the matter up.”
Below is the full statement
Good Morning all. I normally do not encourage anything like this on this platform. But please allow me this once.
I am with the Black Stars in Iceland and received a video clip of myself in the Anas series receiving money in the open in front of the RFA office.
Please, it is not true what the caption says, that I am being bribed to influence the selection of Patrick Razak into the Black Stars B.
I am simply telling you, who serves as chairman, the truth is that I was not taking a bribe as the video seeks to portray. My lawyers are taking the matter up. I shall be back on Saturday, God willing. At least I owe you this.
