Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong has mentioned the name of the person said to be behind the killing of investigative journalist and a former member of the Tiger Eye team, Ahmed Suale.
Since the killing of Ahmed Suale in January 2019, Kennedy Agyapong has been linked to the act, owing to the fact that not long before the gruesome murder of the journalist, he had mentioned Ahmed’s name as one of the people working with Anas.
This was also after the investigative journalist had collaborated with the BBC on the famous “Number 12: When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm” piece, also with celebrated undercover investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
Reports say he was shot dead near his family home in Accra.
The BBC reports that, when Tiger Eye aired its latest investigation, which exposed widespread corruption in African football, Ghanaian MP Kennedy Agyapong began a campaign of hostility against the team, saying he was offended by its undercover methods. He called publicly for Anas to be hanged.
Weeks after the film was screened, in June last year, he used his own TV station to attack Hussein-Suale and exposed the journalist’s most closely guarded secret – his face.
“That’s him,” said Agyapong, as images of Hussein-Suale appeared on the screen. “His other picture is there as well, make it big.”
Agyapong revealed Hussein-Suale’s name and the neighbourhood he lived in. “If you meet him somewhere, slap him… beat him,” he said. “Whatever happens, I’ll pay.”
But, speaking on the accusations of murder against him during an interview with Adinkra TV, New York, the Assin North MP said he had been exonerated. He spoke in Twi.
According to the Member of Parliament for Assin North, one Ansu Gyaebour, a resident of Kumasi, is allegedly the real killer of the journalist.
He explained that he got this information from the police after they assured him that he had been exonerated in the matter.
