Hours after Kennedy Agyapong, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Assin Central had vaguely named one “Ansu Gyeabour” as the assassin killed undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein Suale, Whatsup News has stumbled on a picture of one Harris Ansu Gyeabour who had been on the Police Wanted list since 2020.
The Ansu Gyeabour in the pictures seen by Whatsup News is a member of the governing party and he is being cited by the police for “defrauding by false pretence”.
It is unclear if this person is the same assassin mentioned by Ken Agyapong. Incidentally, our sources claim the Gyeabour on the police wanted list is also based in Kumasi.
In a recent interview on Adinkra TV, Kennedy Agyapong, who is the Chairman of Defence and Interior Committee in Parliament has mentioned one Ansu Gyeabour a Kumasi-based man as the assassin.
“He is in Kumasi, his name is Ansu Gyeabuor,” he told Adinkra TV, adding that the police hierarchy had confirmed the identity of the killer to him, after extensive forensic investigations have been done in the United States and that the police had known this for the past one year.
By his sheer position in Ghana’s legislative chamber, Ken Agyapong’s allegation cannot be taken lightly.
Again, this Gyeabour on the Police wanted list posted on the Ghana Police Service Facebook page on January 10, 2020, would be within the timeframe of the one year that Ken Agyapong claims the Police had known about the identity of the assassin. In fact, he said the police service has pictures of this Ansu Gyeabour.
Despite the curious coincidence, Whatsup News cannot independently verify if they are the same people, particularly given the accusation by Ken Agyapong that some deep cover-up is ongoing around the case of Ahmed Suale’s assassination.
Critics believe that Suale’s murder was the works of a high-level conspiracy to get rid of him because he was one of the undercover journalists who had tracked the disgraced former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi to the Jubilee House.
The investigations captured in a documentary titled Number 12, revealed Nyantakyi mentioning a bribe of US$5 million allocated to President Akufo Addo, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and some ministers.
Only one episode of the two-part documentary was publicly aired, the second episode that contained more damning revelation was never released as promised by Tiger Eye PI which undertook the undercover investigations.
At the time he was shot at point-blank range on his way home, Suale was reportedly helping the Attorney General’s Department with evidence involving the players in the Number 12 investigations.
