“Ahmed Suale’s death is a blot on the image of Ghana and that was what led to Ghana’s drop in position on the media freedom index. It is terrible and ought not have happened but it did,” says Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah.
Ahmed Hussein-Saule, an investigative Journalist with the Tiger Eye PI investigative team, was shot dead by unknown assailants on January 16, 2019 at Madina, a suburb of Accra on his way home.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, the Information Minister assured Ghanaians of tireless efforts to ensure maximum security in Ghana. He added that the situation does not mean press freedom is under attack in Ghana.
“The Police are working seriously to get the murderers of Suale and keen on getting to the bottom of it and I can assure you the perpetrators would be arrested and brought to book.
“We cannot deny the fact that some people are creating a state of insecurity for political gains but we are resourcing the security agencies to ensure a safe Ghana because security issues are top on our agenda,” he assured.
