The Ghanaian Parliament has opened a fresh can of worms that confirms that the brutal murder of investigative journalists, Ahmed Suale conveniently stalled ongoing investigations into an undercover exposé where President Akufo Addo, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia have been mentioned in a US$ 12 million bribe.
When quizzed in Parliament today, Thursday, November 7, 2019, Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Gloria Akuffo admitted that the death of Ahmed Suale, an undercover journalist with Tiger Eye PI stalled the Attorney Generals (AG) Department from being able to investigate the damning allegations in the revelations captured in an undercover documentary dubbed “ Number 12” by Tiger Eye PI
“Unfortunately, Mohammed Suale, a member of Tiger Eye and a principal witness with whom the prosecutors directly engaged in the preparation of the case was tragically killed on 16th May, 2019. The death of the journalist unavoidably stalled the preparation of the case,” the Attorney General said as captured in Parliament’s Order Paper sighted by Whatsup News.
The AG’s department was forced by the Member of Parliament for Mion constituency, Mohammed Abdul-Aziz to answer questions about why the high-profile investigation was stalled.
Ahmed Suale who was the key witness in the case was shot three times at a point-blank range by unknown assailants on motorbikes close to his home in Madina-Accra. His death has happened shortly after the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong had threatened him and put a bounty on his head.
President Nana Akufo-Addo in May 2018 asked the Police to investigate the disgraced former Ghana Football Association President, Kwesi Nyantakyi for influence peddling using the name of the President, the Vice President and Transport Minister and several other top-ranking officials.
Tiger Eye PI had planned to release two parts to the Number 12 documentary, however, after the first release, the second one was stopped under strange circumstances. Speculations have been rife about the damning nature of the sequel. The assassination of Ahmed Suale has also been pointed out as a possible high-profile contract killing to silence him for giving incriminating evidence that might further embarrass the Akufo Addo administration.
