The European Union (EU) has, in a tweet, said press freedom starts from the security of journalists and especially investigative journalists.

The tweet was in direct response to the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale in Accra on Wednesday, 16 January 2018.

Hussein-Suale, an associate of ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, played a significant role in a recent undercover documentary that exposed rot in Ghana and Africa football.

He was shot three times, twice in the chest and one in the neck while driving home.

Many international organisations, civil society organisations and Ghanaians have condemned his gruesome murder.

The police are investigating the case and have promised to bring the perpetrators to book.
