Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has blamed the death of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, an investigator with Anas’ Tiger Eye PI on the decision by one man to unmask the investigative journalist and incite violence against him.
As a result, he wants the appropriate security agencies to fully unravel the circumstances leading to his death and the crime handled in a manner which the perpetrators are severely dealt with.
“We are here today largely because one man recklessly unmasked an investigative reporter and issued threats of violence.”
“Ahmed Suale’s killing cannot be allowed to end up like others- unresolved. We have to get to the bottom of these questionable circumstances and their implications for our wider safety.”
Ahmed Hussein-Suale known for his work in the Tiger Eye PI investigative piece on corruption in Ghana football was shot dead the night of Wednesday, January 16 by unidentified assailants in Accra.
His death of has prompted many social media users as well as local and international bodies to call for the country’s security agencies to pick up Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, for his comments inciting violence against the murdered investigator.
Mr. Rawlings has also declared his support for local and international bodies who are demanding full scale investigations into the heinous crime.
‘I support the call by the President and other opinion leaders for a conclusive investigation. I am equally moved by a strongly worded letter by US Congressman Henry Johnson seeking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s support for the investigation of Suale’s death.’
