Somewhere in the month of March, 2017, Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko sporting club had an encounter at the Accra Sports Stadium.
On the day, diehard fans of Kumasi Asante Kotoko went home not happy because of a decision made by centre referee Samuel Suka.
Barely seven minutes left on the clock, Hearts of Oak had no goal in the game as their match day opponents Asante Kotoko. Then from no where, bang! Penalty. Referee Samuel Suka blew his whistle claiming Ahmed Adams had handled Samuel Yeboah’s shot in the box. Fans went wild. Fast forward, Vincent Atingah converted the penalty kick excellently to make Hearts carry the day.
A little over a year on, Anas 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 GH¢2000 plus a goat to swing decisions to a particular club’s favour. The latest Anas exposé dubbed Number 12 centres around corruption rocking Ghana football.
