Director General of the National Sports Authority Professor Peter Twumasi has been detained at the Legon Police station for failing to uphold a financial agreement reached with Mom and Sons, a private company.
Twumasi reported himself to the police yesterday following the detention of his Secretary Afia Serebour a day before.
According to Citi Sports sources, Professor Twumasi contracted Mom and Sons to make New Yearhampers for the authority at a cost of GH¢25,000.
However, the transaction was not done officially through the NSA and did not go through the required procurement procedures of the Authority.
The company at the centre of the matter tried on several occasions to pick up their monies for the hampers delivered but were unable to, hence the decision to report the matter initially to EOCO and then to the police.
Professor Peter Twumasi has had his statement taken and granted police enquiry bail.
The National Sports Authority is yet to speak on the matter. –Citisports
