The family of the late Tiger Eye PI investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, has said they did ‘everything possible’ to protect the late journalist.

Their efforts include ensuring Ahmed changing his known-name after his photograph and the relevant pages of his passport were splashed on television.

Ahmed, who until his death, worked with Tiger Eye PI was shot and killed in what appeared to be hired assassination on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, at Madina.

His murder came barely eight months after his photographs were shown on television by Member of Parliament for Assin Central Ken Agyapong, asking that he is attacked if he was ever found within his premises.

“In fact, when his photograph was widely circulated on some TV stations and in the print and social media platforms, we tried all we could to have him disguise himself,” he revealed.

“Sometimes even when people come and visit him, we don’t allow anyone at all unless those he knows and even if he doesn’t know them, we change his name just to protect him,” he said.
