The nation woke up on Thursday, 17 January 2019 to news of the demise of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, an Investigative Journalist who played a massive role in Tiger Eye PI’s revelation, ‘Betraying the Game,’ an in-depth Intel on fraudulent and corrupt activities in African football.
Ahmed was shot 3 times, twice in the head and another in the neck On Wednesday night in Madina, a suburb of Accra by unidentified men on a motorcycle while driving home.
A section of Ghanaians are of the view that the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Honourable Kennedy Agyapong must be held responsible for the demise of the budding journalist, and sued for inciting unwarranted and vile violence against the young journalist.
This follows the law maker’s public exposé of the identity of the murdered journalist in a video piece he called, “Who watches the watchman”. Mr Agyapong is quoted to have called for physical attacks on the late Ahmed on his Net 2 owned TV Station, adding that “Whatever happens, I will pay.”
Ace Investigative Journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas and partner to Ahmed at Tiger Eye PI, the investigative firm Ahmed worked for, posted a 1 minute, 21 seconds video on Twitter, with excerpts of the Member of Parliament calling for Ahmed to be beaten because he was a “bad boy”, accompanied by his pictures.
“Kennedy Agyapong put the young man’s picture on TV and invited people to beat him up. A few months later, he is killed. Someone must be questioned” – Kissi Agyabeng [Lawyer for Anas]
@kofi_klu “Kennedy Agyapong must be held accountable. This loose talk culture for come to a halt.” – Twitter
@DogbaAlex “Arrest #KennedyAgyapong Now.” – Twitter
The hashtag, #JournalismIsNotACrime is currently on social media pages across the nation, with citizens sharing their views on the death of Ahmed.
