The family of slain investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale has expressed concerns over the pass of the Police investigations into the murder.
An uncle of the ex-Tiger EyePI investigator who was killed exactly a year ago today says the investigations appear to be dragging with nothing substantial coming up.
“It is getting far too long and nothing is coming out of it. And anytime you investigate something for too long, the evidence is compromised,” Mustapha Iddriss told Francis Abban on the Morning Starr Wednesday.
Hussein-Suale was part of a team led by award-winning journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, whose investigation led to the resignation of the head of the Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi.
Dozens of football referees and officials in several countries were also banned as a result of the investigation, including the Nigerian national team coach, Salisu Yusuf, for receiving cash from undercover journalists posing as agents.
Hussein-Suale was shot in the neck and chest by unknown gunmen on his way home at Madina, police said. Anas tweeted: “Sad news, but we shall not be silenced. Rest in peace, Ahmed.”
Hussein-Suale had previously made a complaint to police after a Ghanaian politician, Kennedy Agyapong, showed his photograph on a private television channel.
