A few hours after promising a GH¢100,000 bounty for information that will lead to the arrest of the killers of undercover journalist Ahmed Hussein-Suale, Assin Central lawmaker, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has upped his bounty, pledging to now give out a house for such information.
Mr Agyapong said any information that would lead to the successful prosecution and sentencing of the killers of Ahmed will attract a house to the source from him.
“Yes, I promised to give the informant money but I want to place on record that the person won’t just receive cash from me. I will give out a house to that person,” he disclosed on Adom TV’s morning show “Badwam” Tuesday.
The Assin Central MP who has been accused by the public as responsible for the assassination of Hussein-Suale in a bid to clear his name, announced the bounty Monday on Net 2 TV, a TV station owned by him.
Hussein-Suale who worked closely with ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas to expose rot in Ghana football in an investigative masterpiece dubbed #Number12 was killed on Wednesday, January 16 at Madina, by unknown gunmen whilst he drove home.
It comes months after the Assin Central lawmaker splashed his pictures on TV calling for retribution over his role in a football corruption probe.
Speaking on his Net 2 TV, the maverick lawmaker said: “It’s a human being that has died, no matter the mistake he has made; he has the right to live”.

“What I want to do is, anyone who can give information to assist in the arrest of the suspects will receive GHC100,000 from me because it’s my reputation on the line.”
But the outspoken lawmaker said ace investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas has disgraced him enough hence the move is just to redeem his image.
