Undercover investigative journalist killed in Ghana

20 January 2019

A Member of the US Congress, Henry Johnson Jr. wants the American government to place a travel ban on Ghanaian legislator, Kennedy Agyapong, for his possible role in the murder of undercover investigator, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

An investigative journalist in Ghana who helped expose a high-ranking official at world soccer body Federation Internationale de Football Association as corrupt was shot dead by gunmen on a motorbike as he drove home alone at night, police said Thursday.

Hussein-Suale belonged to Tiger Eye Private Investigations, a team led by award-winning journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, whose reporting led to the banning of various football referees and officials, including the President of the Ghana Football Association in 2018.

"We ... remain unshaken in our resolve to pursue nation-wreckers and make corruption a high-risk activity in the country", Tiger Eye PI said.

Anas confirmed the death on Twitter.

Press freedom groups said the Ghanaian authorities had to take threats against journalists seriously. Rest in peace, Ahmed.

He urged the security agencies to quicken their investigations and bring the perpetrators of the heinous act to book, adding that violence against media practitioners and journalists must not be tolerated.
