BBC Africa Eye has issued a statement on their social media handle confirming working with Investigative Journalists Anas Aremyaw Anas in his investigative piece on corruption in football.
Critics of the work of Anas Aremyaw Anas especially his methods of unearthing corruption in various state institutions and the Ghana Football Association have sought to impugn that Anas did not collaborate with the BBC in his investigative piece into corruption in the Ghana Premier League and the Ghana Football Association (GFA).
Sulemana Braimah of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) earlier this week posted a correspondence between himself and the BBC in which the BBC is said to have denied collaborating with Anas.
However in a sharp turn of events the BBC Africa Eye issued a statement on their social media handles confirming their collaboration with Anas.
Editor in chief of the Crusading Guide newspaper and spokesman for Anas Aremyaw Anas had earlier stated a collaboration between the investigative journalists and the BBC on the Number 12 exposè. He has had to retract and apologize for the supposed erroneous information after Sulemana Braimah revealed his correspondence with the BBC rather claiming that Anas worked with some people who he knows to be working at the BBC.
This latest twist in the sequence of events confirms that BBC Africa Eye is still collaborating with Anas to do more work.
