Member of Parliament for Assin Central Kennedy Agyapong on Monday dropped a bombshell, revealed the name of the alleged person who partook in the murder of late investigative journalist Ahmed Hussein Suale.
Kennedy Agyapong told Adinkra TV that the person is based in Kumasi and goes by the name Ansu Gyeabour.
“He is in Kumasi. His name is Ansu Gyeabour. It is the same police who revealed his name to me and showed me a picture of him. He killed Ahmed Suale.
“It’s been over a year now since the police disclosed that information to me and my name is out there. He is a tall guy,” he noted.
Though Kennedy Agyapong did not provide any visual evidence of the said Ansu Gyeabour, a picture of a certain man by the same name who was charged with fraud by the Ghana Police Service in 2020 has been making the rounds on social media the last few days.
The ongoing discussions have forced the man to crawl out of his shells and react to the allegations.
In a viral video, Ansu Gyeabour denied knowledge of the incident, slamming the people who are circulating his picture.
He suspects that he is being picked on because of his case at the Ghana Police Service and appealed to people not to connect him with the murder of the journalist.
“All those who know me know that I can’t even kill a fowl. Ahmed Suale? I don’t know him [he said in Akan]. I trade oil and gas. I am an oil and gas trader. I have nothing like no relationship with any media because oil and gas is not tomato that we advertise. We don’t even advertise. I don’t know who Ahmed is. I don’t know whoever the F*ck is. I don’t care.”
“My picture is all over the place that I killed [Ahmed Hussein-Suale]. What if the family of Ahmed [Hussein-Suale] meet me somewhere and they stab me. What will happen? What have you achieved? I have three children. Is it not stupid.”
The Ghana Police has indicated that it is unable to respond to Kennedy Agyapong‘s allegations because the one who alleges should be able to prove it. The Service also says it is also unable to provide updates on the Ahmed Suale matter because it is still a pending issue.
Ahmed Suale’s murder
In June 2018 when Tiger Eye aired its investigation which exposed widespread corruption in African football, Ghanaian MP Kennedy Agyapong began a campaign of hostility against the team, saying he was offended by its undercover methods. He called publicly for Anas to be hanged.
Weeks after the film was screened, in June last year, he used his own TV station to attack Hussein-Suale and exposed the journalist’s most closely guarded secret – his face.
“That’s him,” said Agyapong, as images of Hussein-Suale appeared on the screen. “His other picture is there as well, make it big.”
Agyapong revealed Hussein-Suale’s name and the neighborhood he lived in. “If you meet him somewhere, slap him… beat him,” he said. “Whatever happens, I’ll pay.”
The journalist was murdered on January 16, 2019.
But, speaking on the accusations of murder against him during an interview with Adinkra TV, New York, the Assin North MP said he had been exonerated. He spoke in Twi.
