Asamoah Gyan In Legal Jeopardy, Faces New Court Action
Black Stars Skipper, Asamoah Gyan, has courted more troubles for himself following the acquittal and discharge of four persons he accused of attempted extortion over three years ago, by an Accra Circuit Court.
Three of the four told reporters shortly after the ruling on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, they intend filing civil suit against the footballer for defaming them, and tagging them as extortionists.
Anthony Osarfo, has revealed that though the case has been concluded in court, it is now time to redeem his image having lost so much and locked in Ghana, because within the period he could not travel, which has had a drain on his finances because of sloppy business.
“I have lost so much and I need to clear my name. Filing a civil suit against Asamoah Gyan is non-negotiable. I am waiting to pick the ruling from the court and we can take it from there”, he revealed.
His colleague, Chris Handler, on the other hand, disclosed that he has not made up his mind about what to do next, but he hinted of also pursuing the matter to another level just to have himself cleared completely.
“I have not thought of it yet but there is a possibility I could take him on through a civil suit”, he told reporters.
Asamoah Gyan on Thursday, March 20, 2019, suffered a humiliating defeat at an Accra Circuit Court, after the prosecution failed to prove Sarah Kwablah and three others including Osarfo Anthony, Chris Handler and Ekow Micah, tried extorting money from him using the former as a bait.
The Trial Judge, Her Honour Afia Agbanu Kumador, therefore, upheld the submission of a no case by counsel for defendants, explaining that the prosecution had not been able to prove that a prima facie case has been established against the accused persons.
Asamoah Gyan, last year confessed he slept with Sarah Kwablah the first day he met her. According to the footballer, they met on social media, after Sarah had sent him a message after the 2015 AFCON when he came back to Ghana.
He disclosed that it was just after his training sessions at STC, he met with Sarah and they drove to Sarah’s residence where he slept with her. “She sent me a message on social media and we became friends, so after 2015 AFCON tournament, I came to Ghana and we met at STC where I train and because I’m married I introduced her as a friend to my colleagues, and after the training we drove in my dirty training kits to her house and we had sex.”
Although the captain confessed to have had sex with Sarah, he denied sodomizing the young lady, like Lawyer Maurice Ampaw has made the world believe.
He said, “I will not deny sleeping with Sarah Kwablah, we both enjoyed the lovemaking, but she twisted the story and accused me of raping her, we had a good time”.
He indicated that the lady and her family made those accusations up in order to extort money from him, adding that he was compelled by circumstances to tell his wife about it when the news was spreading like wildfire, and since he is a truthful man
Sarah Kwablah accused Ghana’s Captain Asamoah Gyan, of raping and sodomizing her. Her lawyer, Maurice Ampau has since the issue came up, on several occasions used several foul words against the Captain.
