A group calling itself ‘Save The Nation for The Future Leaders’ has petitioned the Office of the Acting Inspector General of Police (IGP) for an update on investigation into the murder of undercover journalist, Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Led by Kwadwo Atta Appiah Boahen, the group handed over an official petition to Acting IGP, James Oppong Boanu in Accra while expressing frustration over the fact that the Police has not been communicating the progress of the investigation to the public.
Ahmed Hussein Suale, an associate of undercover journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was in January this year, martyred in his Madina neighborhood. Unknown gunmen on a motorcycle pulled by his car in traffic and shot him in the chest and neck.
Events leading to his death has left question marks over people connected to the Akufo-Addo Government and the ruling New Patriotic Party, especially, Assin Central MP, Ken Agyapong who had published the undercover journalist’s pictures and openly instigated attacks on him.
As the murder had come at a time that Tiger Eye PI, the undercover investigative stable headed by Anas, had published secretly recorded videos in which disgraced former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, had attempted to take bribes on behalf of President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia, the murder of the journalist has since hung on the image of the administration.
Save The Nation For The Future Leaders prayed the Acting IGP to catalyze the investigations so justice can be brought to the deceased journalist.
The Acting IGP, in response claimed the Police has been leaving no stone unturned to unravel the mystery and bring the perpetrators to book, promising that the effort would continue unabated.
“I can assure we would read the petition and address the issues you have raised in the petition. I can also assure you that whatever its takes to bring matter to conclusion, we will do,” James Oppong Boanu said.
