Maverick Politician and Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Ken Agyapong has said he has absolutely no trust in the Ghana Police Service to do a good job in investigating the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Ken Agyapong’s reckless comments on live TV calling on the public to beat up Ahmed Suale has come into focus after the journalist was shot and killed in the night by unknown assailants in Madina recently.
The Minority in Parliament demanded the arrest of Mr Agyapong, but the Interior Minister insists that will not happen.
Ken Agyapong told the BBC in an interview that he proceeded with his own investigations into the death of Ahmed Suale as he’s lost confidence in the Police.
”I don’t trust the Police…yes I don’t trust the Police…read my lips.”
When asked if he trusts the Police to find the killers of Ahmed Hussein Suale, the financier of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) responded “I am doing better investigations than even the Police. I have a lot of evidence but I don’t share with anybody, I will serialize it for Ghanaians to see who Anas is and I’m not afraid to die,” he told the BBC’s Thomas Nnadi.
The Assin Central lawmaker who has been accused by the public as responsible for the assassination of Hussein-Suale in a bid to clear his name has announced a GHC100,000 bounty for information that will lead to the arrest of the killers of the undercover journalist.
Hussein-Suale who worked closely with ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to expose rot in Ghana football in an investigative masterpiece dubbed #Number12 was killed on Wednesday, January 16, by unknown gunmen whilst he drove home.
He was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck, dying instantly, according to the police.
It comes months after Ken Agyapong splashed his pictures on TV calling for retribution over his role in a football corruption probe.
