The Ghana Police Service says it has interrogated former Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi and MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong as part of its investigations into the killing of an employee of Tiger Eye PI, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
In a statement issued on Monday, the police said its team of detectives has taken statements from both individuals over the matter.
The Police revealed that it had gotten many significant leads about Ahmed Suale’s death and was following up those leads to help it identify the perpetrators of the heinous crime.
“The CID continues to interrogate other persons of interest as well as following up on multiple significant leads,” it said.
Ahmed-Suale, who worked closely with investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas on the #Number12 football corruption exposé among others, was shot dead last Wednesday at Madina while driving home.
Some eyewitnesses said the two assailants sped off on a motorbike after shooting Mr. Ahmed-Suale.
The MP for Assin Central came under heavy attack following news of the journalists’ death because he openly called for retribution against Ahmed-Suale on TV in the heat of the release of the #Number12 video in July 2018.
Others also pointed accusing fingers at Kwesi Nyantakyi who has been banned perpetually by FIFA and lost all his positions in local and international football due to the #Number12 exposé.
Many international organizations including associations of journalists have condemned the killing and called for speedy and thorough investigations.
A US Congressman has also suggested that the US assists Ghana to investigate the matter which has been described as an affront to democracy and free speech in Ghana.
Meanwhile, the police is urging the public to volunteer relevant information to help it identify the perpetrators of the crime.
While committing to ensure a diligent work is done on the case, the police assured the public of making all information it gathers in connection with the investigation public, when it is appropriate to do so.
