President Nana Akufo-Addo has shared his condolences with the family of an undercover investigator who was shot dead on Wednesday night.
Condemning the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale “unreservedly”, the president urged the police to find his murderers “as soon as possible”.
Ahmed Hussein-Suale was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck at Madina in Accra. His killing comes months after an MP with the governing New Patriotic Party Kennedy Agyapong publicly called for his beating.
A video of the Assin Central MP has gone viral containing his charge for Ahmed’s beating describing the undercover investigator as a dangerous bad boy.
Ahmed was a member of the private investigations company Tiger Eye PI which uncovered astonishing corruption in Ghana’s sports administration.
The investigative documentary broadcast on June 6, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre led to the resignation of the GFA President and FIFA Council member, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
It also resulted in the suspension of the Ghana Premier League and a life ban on eight referees filmed taking bribes in the explosive documentary.
Some 43 referees were also banned for 10 years.
Mr. Agyapong began his attacks on the late journalist after the Tiger Eye PI team released an investigative piece titled ‘Number 12.’
The vociferous MP questioned the methodology of the undercover team to gather their evidence.
He subsequently, released a video himself titled “Who Watches the Watchman” as a response to the Number 12 piece.
He showed pictures of Ahmed Hussein-Suale on his TV network NET 2.
