Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has disclosed the identity of the man behind death of Ahmed Suale an investigative journalist and a former member of the Tiger Eye team who was killed on Wednesday night January 16, 2021.
According to the loudmouth, the man who killed the investigative journalist is a resident in Kumasi.
He explained that he got this information from the police after they assured him that he had been exonerated in the matter.
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 after the investigative journalist had collaborated with the BBC on the famous “Number 12: When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm” piece.
Pre information, the investigative journalist with Tiger Eye PI Team was shot dead near his family home in Accra.
Tiger Eye aired a documentary which sought to expose widespread corruption in African football and this is not go down well with the legislator for Assin Central Constituency who started a campaign of hostility against the team. According to him, the methodology and approach the team used is inappropriate and they have to be questioned.
Weeks after the film was screened, in June last year, Mr. Agyapong used his own TV station to attack the slain journalist, Ahemd 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.
“Why is it that when someone kills a police, within three days, the person is caught? When a Ghanaian kills another citizen who is not a police personnel or part of the security agencies, the person is never arrested. Why? That is why I am saying that when I go, my Committee [Committee on Defense in Parliament] will invite the minister.
“And I have a typical example of Ahmed Suale, when I condemned Anas, the person who killed him is in the Ashanti region. The police briefed me themselves that I am exonerated and that they don’t know why this thing happened and that I should stay away but I insisted, ‘how do I stay away when Anas, that thief, that murderer mentioned my name to the extent that a Congressman reported me so much that when I got to Houston in 2019 November, I was stopped that I had killed Ahmed Suale’.
“And then today, you have the report, you know. And the most painful aspect is that they told me that I should have patience and that the guy [suspected killer], whose name is Ansu Gyeabour – today, you are privileged, you are the first because it enrages me. I say he is in Kumasi. Yes! Yes! Ansu Gyeabour, and the police have shown me his pictures, asking me to be patient, for over one year yet my name is out there,” he explained.
