The Ghana Police Service has dismissed claims that it has abandoned the search for the killers of investigative journalist, Ahmed Suale.
Ahmed was shot and killed at Madina, a suburb of Accra in 2019 by unknown assailants. He was shot thrice – twice on the chest and once on the neck – while he drove home after a family gathering.
A crucial part of the investigative firm, Tiger Eye PI, he played an important role in the Number 12 documentary which led to the resignation of GFA boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi and the sacking of dozens of African referees for their involvement in alleged corrupt acts during matches.

Despite his gruesome murder, however, the police have yet to prosecute any of the persons arrested in connection with the murder leaving the public infuriated.
At a ceremony to mark the first anniversary of the murder of the journalist, from where Joy News’ Komla Adom reports, Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Juliana Obeng of the Public Affairs Unit of the CID dismissed claims that the Service has abandoned the search for the perpetrators of the crime.
