Anas' murdered key partner, Ahmed Suale laid to rest

We begin with some disturbing news in Ghana's media, where there has been a murder of an investigative journalist.

The incident reportedly happened at around 2300 hours on Wednesday night at Madina, a suburb of Accra.

In attendance at the burial grounds were the Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Kwaku Baako and Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Press freedom groups said the Ghanaian authorities had to take threats against journalists seriously.

Brother of the late Ahmed Hussein-Suale, Ibrahim Kamal confirmed the burial date in an interview with Accra-based Adom FM.

"Ahmed was rushing home around 11 pm [Ghana time] after news that his daughter was sick and was shot through his vehicle window, with two bullets hitting his chest and one hitting his neck", Sammy Darko, a member of Tiger Eye PI's legal team, told Accra-based Citi FM on Thursday morning.

Hussein-Suale had helped to expose a massive corruption scandal, in the Country's National football leagues.

Investigations are still ongoing to bring the perpetrators of the crime to book as the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo assured.
