Following the murder of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale, the former President of the Ghana Football Association and the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong were invited by the Criminal Investigations Department for questioning.

For Mr Nyantakyi, the invitation by the CID was as a result of the role Mr Suale played in the Number 12 Expose released by Anas Aremeyaw’s Tiger Eye Private Investigative firm of which Mr. Suale was a key member.

The Number 12 video which exposed over 70 officials of the FA engaging in various corrupt activities including taking bribes and fixing of matches caused Mr. Nyantakyi to lose his job as he was also captured in the video.

Following the release of the video, Mr Kennedy Agyapong who has been a staunch critic of the works of Anas on his Net 2 television station released pictures of Ahmed Suale as a member of the Tiger Eye team and called on the general public to “deal” with him.

A lot of fingers were pointed in the direction of Mr Kennedy Agyapong and Mr Nyantakyi when Ahmed Suale was murdered by two assailants on a motorbike whilst driving to his family home at Madina in Accra, an incident which happened barely seven months after the release of Number 12.

A year on, Mr Nyantakyi in an exclusive interview with GhanaWeb, has condemned reports linking him to the murder of member of Tiger P.I., Ahmed Hussein Suale a year on.

Information reaching DAILY GUIDE indicates that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has invited the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong and the former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, for questioning.

It is believed to be in connection with the recent murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a key team member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations (PI), the investigative outfit manned by Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

He was gunned down by unidentified persons on the night of Wednesday, January 16, this year at Madina, Accra near his house.

He received three gunshots, two in the chest and another in the neck, according to the police.

Mr Hussein-Suale was instrumental in the production of Anas’ Number 12 investigative piece that rocked the country and led to the resignation of Mr Nyantakyi and other football officials, who were implicated.

Meanwhile, a number of organisations, both international and local, have condemned the gruesome killing of the undercover investigative journalist.

The United Nations (UN), in a statement, said that “the United Nations calls for a prompt, thorough and transparent investigation into Mr. Hussein-Suale’s death and full accountability for those responsible. Failure to bring perpetrators of human rights violations to justice creates a climate of impunity which perpetuates the cycle of violence against journalists. “The United Nations in Ghana reiterates the message of the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres on the occasion of the International Day to End Impunity for Crimes against Journalists:

“When journalists are targeted, societies as a whole pay a price. This should not become the new normal.”

President Akufo-Addo and almost all influential figures in the country have condemned the killing of the journalist.
