Ahmed Hussein Suale

The 34-year-old investigative journalist was shot and killed in his car by unknown assailants riding a motorbike in Medina, a suburb of the capital, Accra. He was shot three times on the chest and neck and died on the spot. Husein was a member of the team led by award-winning journalist Anas Aremeyaw that exposed corruption in African football. According to AFP, Suale had lodged a complaint with the police shortly before his killing, after Ghanaian politician Kennedy Agyapong had showed his photograph on a private television channel promising “payment for supporters who took retribution against Hussein.”
