Gunmen Assassinate Undercover Journalist in Ghana

By Dipo Olowookere

A Ghanaian undercover journalist, Mr Ahmed Hussein-Suale, has been assassinated by some unknown gunmen.

Mr Hussein-Suale was shot dead in what looked like an assassination on Wednesday night while returning to his home.

The deceased was a team member of popular undercover journalist in Ghana, Mr Anas Aremayaw Anas, who runs Tiger Eye Private Investigations.

After Mr Hussein-Suale involved in the undercover report exposing bribing scandal in the Ghana Football Association, a local politician and lawmaker, Mr Kennedy Agyapong, was seen in a video saying, “If he comes here, beat him…, whatever happens, I’ll pay.”

His football scandal report led to the lifetime ban on the former Ghana FA boss, Mr Kwesi Nyantakyi, by FIFA.

It was reported that Mr Hussien-Suale was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck in the Accra suburb of Madina at about 23:00 GMT on Wednesday by the assassins, who were reportedly on motorbikes.

“Sad news, but we shall not be silenced. Rest in peace, Ahmed,” Mr Anas posted on his Twitter page on Thursday. Meanwhile, the remains of Mr Hussen-Suale have reportedly been taken to the Police Hospital Morgue and will be buried soon.
