Investigators with private investigative firm, Tiger Eye PI say they are overwhelmed with grief following the shocking killing of a member of their team, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
Ahmed, who is investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ key partner, was shot by unknown assailants in Madina, a suburb of Accra on Wednesday while driving his car home.
He was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck. Police reports say he died on the spot. No personal belongings of Ahmed were stolen, prompting suspicions it was a targeted murder.
The team at Tiger Eye PI in a statement yesterday said it commiserates with Ahmed’s family on the painful loss and prays for Allah to give them strength to bear the grief.
They added in the statement, however, that they are “terribly devastated by the dastardly act, but remain unshaken in our resolve to pursue nation-wreckers and make corruption a high-risk activity in the country.”
”We call on the security agencies to unmask the elements behind this assassination and bring them to book,” the statement added.
Below is a copy of the full statement:

Meanwhile, relatives of assassinated undercover journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, are demanding justice for their fallen kinsman.
Some of the relatives who spoke to Joy News say the late Ahmed received a call Wednesday night – while hanging out with some community folk – that his ward was not feeling well.
“…shortly after leaving our company to take the boy to the hospital, we heard he was shot dead by some men rode away on a motorbike,” of the residents said.
Recall that MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, began his attacks on the late journalist after the Tiger Eye PI team released an investigative piece, Number 12, which detailed corruption in the football circles of Ghana.
The MP vociferously questioned the methods used by the undercover team to gather their evidence.
He subsequently released a video himself titled “Who Watches the Watchman” as a response to the Number 12 piece.
Meanwhile, police have visited the community to gather evidence and commence investigations.
More so, tributes from high and low in society have started filtering in with President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo Addo, former Presidents John Dramani Mahama and Jerry John Rawlings all expressing their condolences to the family of Ahmed.
“The boy who is very dangerous, he lives right here in Madina. Anywhere you meet him, give him slaps. If he comes here into our premises, beat him and I will pay for anything that comes out of his beatings. Show their pictures and lets all watch them. As I showed the picture, you all confirmed that he lives in Madina. This is the boy, he is a bad boy and his name is Ahmed. He has one other picture, put that one largely on the screen and watch him well. I want Anas to prove what he can do”, Ken Agyapong.
