President Akufo Addo has condemned the killing of the late member of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ investigative firm Tiger Eye PI, Ahmed Hussein by unknown assailants on Wednesday night.
In a short message, the President urged the police to as soon as possible bring the perpetrators of this heinous act to book.
“I’ve learnt with sadness of the killing of Ahmed Hussei-Suale, an associate of investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas. I condemn the act unreservedly, and extend my condolences to his family. I expect the Police bring to book, as soon as possible, perpetrators of this heinous crime. Once again my heartfelt condolences.”
Ahmed Husein was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck by gunmen on motorbike in Madina, Accra while driving home.
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service has commenced investigations to unravel circumstances leading to the murder. The Investigators numbering 15 have picked vital information from the crime scene and are speaking to eyewitnesses.
Some eye witnesses say they saw the unidentified assailants lurking around the neighborhood on a motorbike hours before he was killed.
Ahmed was one of Tiger Eye investigators who had his picture circulated by Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong in his ‘who watches the watchman’ anti-Anas video documentary and called on the public to deal ruthlessly with him whenever they came into contact with him, and promised monetary reward for the perpetrators.
