The Speaker of Parliament, Prof Aaron Mike Oquaye has granted the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service permission to interrogate the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, in connection with the murder of undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
The interrogation, according to Class News sources, will be done in parliament.
Mr Agyapong has become a suspect because he incited violence against the Tiger Eye PI journalist when he was alive.
Hussein-Suale was shot thrice on Wednesday, 16 January 2019 at Madina, a suburb of Accra while driving home around 10 p.m. His assailants made their getaway on a motorbike.
Shortly after his gruesome murder, world-renowned investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas pieced together a short video containing an old clip of Mr Agyapong’s incitement of violence against Mr Hussein-Suale after Tiger Eye PI premiered the Number 12 undercover documentary which exposed rot in African football that led to the resignation of Ghana’s FA president, Kwesi Nyantakyi and his subsequent banning for life from all football-related activities by FIFA, for taking bribe.
Apart from inciting violence against Hussein-Suale, Mr Agyapong is also seen in the clip, exposing the undercover journalist’s identity by splashing his photos on his NET 2 TV station as well as on social media. Mr Agyapong has, however, denied any involvement in the murder.
Meanwhile, Mr Agyapong has said he will personally gift GHS100,000 to anybody who provides credible information that will lead to the arrest of the killers of Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
Speaking on Net 2 TV on Monday, 28 January 2019, Mr Agyapong said: “Let me announce today that I will give anybody who will help identify the killers of Ahmed, GHS100, 000.
“Because this is my reputation, I have been accused by Anas of being behind the assassination. This is a human being who has lost his life. No matter his errors, he had the right to life.”
