Addis Ababa, Ethiopia (ADV) – Officials of Ghana’s Criminal Investigation Department has announced that they have started interrogating two prime suspects in connection with the assassination of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

Assistant Commission of Police, David Eklu made the announcement in a statement on Monday evening, adding that details will be handed over the courts ahead of trials.

Those being cross-examined include Assin Central Member of Parliament Kennedy Agyapong and the disgraced former Ghana Football Association Kwesi Nyantakyi.

Sources said Kennedy is a confidant of Kwesi who fell from grace when the assassinated journalist’s news office, the Tiger Eye, proved his links to corruption within the Ghana Football Association and was sacked.

The Tiger Eye is run by the several times award-winning undercover and investigative journalist Anas Aremayew Anas.

His colleague and slain journalist Ahmed Hussein-Saule was shot three times by unidentified gunmen on a motorbike in Accra last Tuesday evening and was buried there the next day.

“Updates and outcomes of these investigations will be made known to the general public as they become available and appropriate to do so,” assistant commissioner of police David Eklu said in the statement on Monday.
