The family of the late investigative journalist, Ahmed Suale, have diclosed that they do not believe that justice will be served should Kennedy Agyapong become the president.
Kennedy Agyapong is one of the 10 candidates contesting the flag bearer slot of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) towards election 2024.
The contentious matter of Suale’s untimely demise resurfaced following a series of exclusive interviews held by the lawmaker, with allegations linking him to the journalist’s death.
Ahmed Suale, 31, an investigative journalist, worked with Tiger Eye PI, the investigative firm established by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, known for its use of undercover journalistic methods to expose corruption and other ills in society.
In a press statement, the family said Mr Agyapong has continuously not showed remorse anytime Suale’s issue comes up for discussion.
“By his lack of remorse and the frantic defence of his conduct, the family is doubtful that Ahmed would ever get justice under a misfortune where Kennedy Agyapong becomes the president of Ghana,” the family said in a press statement dated August 16, 2023 and signed by Ibrahim Kamilu Tahidu.
The family added, “We are also disappointed that, to date, the Police has not made any progress on the matter. At minimum, we expect the Police to look into the crime of aiding and abetting, and threats of harm where there is plentiful of evidence, all of which was reported to them on a couple of occasions by Ahmed Suale.”
Ahmed-Hussein Suale was shot multiple times by unidentified men on a motorbike on January 16, 2019 while he was driving at Madina in Accra.
