'I haven't said Ken is a suspect, but he's the 1st police must question' – Tiger Eye PI lawyer

Assin Central MP,  Kennedy Agyapong Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong

The lawyer for Tiger Eye PI, Mr. Kissi Adjabeng has said he has not branded Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong as a suspect in the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale, one of the partners of world-renowned and globally celebrated undercover journalists Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Mr Agyapong incited violence against 31-year-old Hussein-Suale and splashed his photos on his TV station as well as on social media, following the Number 12 undercover work done by Tiger Eye, which exposed a lot of rot in African football leading to the resignation of Ghana’s FA president Kwesi Nyantakyi as well as the sacking of over 40 referees by FIFA.

Even though Mr. Agyapong has denied involvement in the killing of the journalist, his critics including the Minority Caucus in parliament, say he must be arrested, questioned and prosecuted for the murder, since, in their argument, his conducted amounted to abetment of crime.

Hussein-Suale was shot thrice on Wednesday night at Madina, a suburb of Accra while driving home around 10 p.m.

His assailants made their getaway on a motorbike.

Speaking about the incident in an interview with Kofi TV, Mr Adjabeng, who had earlier told Class91.3FM in an interview that the MP had questions to answer in connection with the murder, said: “I’m not saying he is a suspect, but he’s the first person they [police] should interrogate”.

Nonetheless, he said anything at all could have led to the murder of the investigative journalists and, so, called on the police to intensify its investigations and do a good job at unraveling the mystery behind the killing.

“Probably, Ahmed got involved in a transaction that went bad”, he guessed, and, so, urged for calm as the police investigate the matter.
