Private investigative firm, Tiger Eye PI has said it is terribly devastated by the chilling murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale but remains resolute in uncovering wrongdoing in the society.
Ahmed Hussein, who worked closely with ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was shot by gunmen on a motorbike Wednesday night while in his car driving home.
He was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck. The body has since been conveyed to the Police Hospital Mortuary in Accra.
In a statement commiserating with the family of the slain undercover journalist, Tiger Eye PI said: “We at Tiger Eye PI are terribly devastated by the dastardly act, but remain unshaken in our resolve to pursue nation-wreckers and make corruption a high-risk activity in the country.”
The killing of Ahmed comes months after his picture was brandished on TV by a member of parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong during the airing of his anti-Anas documentary ‘who watches the watchman’ and called on the public to attack him as he was ready to face the consequences.
