Journalist in Ghana Who Exposed Football Corruption Shot Dead

Ghana journalist shot dead

The investigator, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, was notably exposed by Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong in the aftermath of the #Number12 exposé on corruption in Ghana football.

They could also call the Police on telephone numbers: 0244623866, 0242814863 18555 and 191 respectively.

Ahmed Husein-Suale, who is a teammate of the award-winning investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was shot dead at Madina in Accra.

He identified Hussein-Suala as living in the Madina area.

He sarcastically stated that he had a business deal somewhere he has to attend and that upon his return, he will "fire Anas and his 'stupid" lawyer for their diversionary tactics in relation to the gruesome death of the journalist.

The undercover report published a year ago led to a lifetime ban for the former head of Ghana's Football Association. The BBC said Hussein-Suale worked with it on various projects, including an investigation into human body parts sold for ritual magic in Malawi.

Anas, who covers his face in public for safety reasons, posted about the death on his Facebook and Twitter feed.

Is "10 Year Challenge" helping Facebook mine data?
For instance, "Let's just imagine that you wanted to, say, train a facial recognition algorithm on age-related characteristics". Now, after the challenge went viral, some people are starting to question if the challenge really is as innocent as it looks.

We can not allow the voices of truth to be muffled by those who would benefit from silence and deceit.

"We call on the security agencies to unmask the elements behind this assassination and bring them to book", Tiger Eye PI said.

In an interview in 2015, Anas told RFI that it was "very uncomfortable" to be living with the thought that the "bad guys are always on your heels and they want to expose you".

The US Congressman is, therefore, demanding "a prompt and thorough investigation" into the possible role Mr. Agyapong's utterances might have played in the gruesome killing of Mr. Hussein-Suale.

Press freedom groups said the Ghanaian authorities had to take threats against journalists seriously.

Global media watchdog the Committee for the Protection of Journalists called for an immediate investigation and for the authorities "to ensure that threats against the press are taken seriously".
