Today marks three years since Ghana lost one of the country’s fighters against corruption. The killers of Investigative Journalist and collaborator of Anas Aremeyaw Anas, Ahmed Hussein Suale, remain unknown to this day.
Ahmed Hussein-Suale was shot dead in Madina, Accra on January 16, 2019. A very shocking assassination that came weeks after he received threats.
The journalist was targeted among the investigators who work with the famous Ghanaian journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, founder of the group Tiger Eye Private Investigations.
The last project that the group published before the attack on Hussein-Suale, was an exposé called “Number 12”.
The investigation revealed a series of corruption within the Ghana Football Association, leading to the dismissal of several officials. FIFA has also suspended some referees following these revelations.
The case is still in the hands of the Ghanaian authorities who have so far not uncovered the perpetrators of the assassination.
Ahmed Hussein-Suale, the only identified journalist among those working with Anas, was killed in Madina, Accra, on January 16, 2019.
According to reports, unidentified men on motorbikes shot him three times, twice in the chest and once in the neck in his vehicle. Ahmed was 31 years old.
