Ex-President John Dramani Mahama has extended his condolence to the family of the assassinated Tiger Eye investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale and asked government to bring the perpetrators to book.
Ahmed’s chilling murder 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.
Ahmed Hussein who worked with ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas was shot by gunmen on a motorbike Wednesday night while he drove home.
He was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck, dying instantly.
In a Facebook post Former President Mahama said “We woke up to the sad news of the killing of investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale. My condolences to his family and colleagues at Tiger Eye PI.
For a democracy like Ghana, which is a model for our continent, things like this should not happen. There’s been a spate of killings in our country lately, and we urge government and the security agencies to be up and doing and bring the perpetrators of these dastardly acts to book”.
However, some section of Ghanaian have been calling for the arrest of the for Assin Central, maverick MP.
Meanwhile, the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has implored President Akufo-Addo to take a personal interest in the dastardly murder of the investigative journalist with Tiger Eye PI.
