The date is March 2017. Two of Ghana’s most successful clubs lock horns at the Accra Sports Stadium. It’s the Super Clash!

Even though most Ghanaians complain about the poor state of our local clubs and league, Asante Kotoko versus Hearts of Oak gives a special treat. As interesting as the game was, one set of fans went home not happy because of a decision made by centre referee Samuel Suka.

With seven minutes left on the clock, Hearts of Oak had no goal in the game as their matchday opponents Asante Kotoko.Then, bang! Penalty. Referee Samuel Suka blew his whistle claiming Ahmed Adams had handled Samuel Yeboah’s shot in the box. Fans went wild.

Kotoko’s then coach Godwin Ablordey was as confused as ever after watching replays but Suka’s decision stood. Vincent Atingah stepped up to slot home for a Hearts of Oak 1-0 victory.

A little over a year on, Anan Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative journalism has revealed that Super Clash goal did not just come by from a ball hitting the hand.

In the video dubbed Number 12, Samuel Suka’s decisions during the game were influenced. Mr Suka took cash plus a goat (yeah, a goat) to swing decisions to a particular club’s favour.

The latest Anas expose centres around corruption rocking Ghana football. President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi was also featured in the corruption expose where he created a company to get a cut of a Ghana Premier League sponsorship deal.
