CID probes Kennedy Agyapong, Nyantakyi over murder of Anas' boy

Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has invited the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong and the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, for questioning.

It is believed to be in connection with the recent murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a key team member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations (PI), the investigative outfit manned by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

He was gunned down by unidentified persons on the night of Wednesday, January 16, this year at Madina, Accra near his house.

He received three gunshots, two in the chest and another in the neck, according to the police.

Mr Hussein-Suale was instrumental in the production of Anas’ Number 12 investigative piece that rocked the country and led to the resignation of Mr Nyantakyi and other football officials, who were implicated.

Meanwhile, a number of organisations, both international and local, have condemned the gruesome killing of the undercover investigative journalist.

The United Nations (UN), in a statement, said that “the United Nations calls for a prompt, thorough and transparent investigation into Mr. Hussein-Suale’s death and full accountability for those responsible. Failure to bring perpetrators of human rights violations to justice creates a climate of impunity which perpetuates the cycle of violence against journalists.



“The United Nations in Ghana reiterates the message of the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres on the occasion of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists:

“When journalists are targeted, societies as a whole pay a price. This should not become the new normal.”

President Akufo-Addo and almost all influential figures in the country have condemned the killing of the journalist.
