Ahmed’s Assassination: Is An Attack On All Anti-Corruption Fighters—GII

The Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), the local chapter of Transparency International (TI) has described the gruesome murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, one of Tiger Eye Private Investigative journalists as an attack on the fight against corruption in Ghana.

Ahmed was shot three times, twice in the chest and once in the neck by gunmen riding motorbike late Wednesday night, January 16, 2019 at Madina in Accra while driving home.

GII, in statement said, this act is not only going to create unnecessary fear and panic among well-meaning Ghanaians who are desirous to join the fight against corruption, but it is also going to dent the image of Ghana’s growing democracy.

GII wants the Police and all other appropriate state agencies to swiftly investigate this heinous crime and make the perpetrators face the full rigours of the law.

KILLING OF AHMED HUSSEIN-SUALE, AN ATTACK ON THE FIGHT AGAINST CORRUPTION - GII

The news of the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a known Investigative Journalist with Anas’ Tiger-Eye PI has been received by the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), the local chapter of Transparency International (TI) with grave trepidation as the act is signalling a dangerous twist to the fight against corruption in Ghana.

As the enormous contribution of investigative journalists and the media in general to the fight against corruption cannot be overemphasized, GII joins all other anti-corruption Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) and media institutions in Ghana and the world over to condemn this dastardly act.

This act is not only going to create unnecessary fear and panic among well-meaning Ghanaians who are desirous to join the fight against corruption, but it is also going to dent the image of Ghana’s growing democracy.

GII is therefore of the opinion that, to end the impunity of attacks on journalists, the Police and all other appropriate state agencies must swiftly investigate this heinous crime and make the perpetrators face the full rigours of the law.
