Chairman of the Black Stars B Management Committee, Eddie Doku has refuted claims in Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ “#Number12” exposé as having taken bribe to influence game-time for a player during the 2017 Wafu Cup.
In the investigative piece, Doku was seen stashing money received from a Tiger Eye undercover reporter into the side pockets of his jacket and a final bundle of the cash into his back pocket while allegedly uttering assuring words that he would help Hearts winger Patrick Razak would be selected for games and play more.
But Doku, who doubles as the Greater Accra Refional Football Association Chairman, has vehemently denied that was the discussion that led to him receiving the money.
“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 noted in the statement.
According to Eddie Doku, 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.
