The Ghana Police Service has revealed that a team comprising of detectives and other experts have interrogated former Ghana Football Association (GFA) boss Kwesi Nyantakyi in connection with the death of Ghanaian journalist, Ahmed Hussein- Suale.
According the Police Service, a statement has been taken from Kwesi Nyantakyi because the deceased played a key role in the Number 12 documentary, a video which was put together by undercover journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to expose extensive rot in football.
In a statement to update the general public signed by ACP David Eklu, the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) confirmed that they have began “extensive and rigorous investigations into the unfortunate killing of Mr Hussein Suale.”
“The CID has and continues to interrogate other persons of interest as well as following up on multiple significant leads,” the statement added.
Ahmed Husein-Suale, who is an associate of Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was shot dead at close range Accra – Madina last Wednesday night.
Since Mr. Hussein-Suale was heavily involved in the Number 12 documentary that exposed former GFA President Kwesi Nyantakyi, Kwesi mentioned the deceased in his statement to the police following his arrest after the release of the video.
Members of Tiger Eye PI then came under heavy personal attacks from persons against their work, including the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentarian for Assin Central in the Central Region.
Kennedy Agyapong used his television station NET2 to call for violence against the investigator, offering to pay personally for such violence, disclosed deceased’s whereabouts and showed photographs of him during a live broadcast.
Per police reports, the MP has been interrogated and a statement taken from him.
The CID is therefore appealing to the general public to provide information to the nearest police station or through:
Call: 0244623866, 0242814863 or the Toll-free numbers 18555 and 191
