A Ghanaian undercover journalist who helped expose corruption in African football has been shot dead in the capital, triggering widespread outrage and demands for authorities to bring his killers to justice.
The journalist died instantly after being shot twice in the chest and in the neck, Agyebeng said. The premises of the GFA was declared a crime scene by local police, the Executive Committee of the FA was overhauled, all competitive local football matches and competitions have been suspended while 69 referees were banned, eight of whom have been sent out of the game for life.
Hussein is said to have been part of a crew led by Anas Aremeyaw - an award-winning journalist whose exposés led to the banning of some of Africa's biggest football officials.
Media organisations and journalists in Ghana on Thursday called for more protection and demanded the government fully investigate.
Some of the methods used by Anas' team have been questioned and stoked criticism, particularly the tactic of reporters posing as others to trap possibly corrupt figures.
"I have learnt with sadness of the killing of Ahmed Hussein-Suale.", he wrote.
Reacting to news of his death, Anas posted an old video in which the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong was issuing threats and asking people to harm the late Ahmed if they come across him because he was a unsafe person.
Ranting and shouting into the camera, Agyapong said: "That boy (Ahmed-Hussein) that's very unsafe, he lives here in Madina". So I ordered them to stop him [Ahmed] from coming there and "beat the hell out from him" because he can fix secret cameras around. Agyapong, in comments made on Ghanaian radio on Thursday, denied any involvement in the killing.
Anas posted a video on Twitter alongside Hussein-Suale death announcement which showed a Ghanaian lawmaker Kennedy Agyapong making violent threats against the deceased. Anas and his Tiger Eye production company said the gunmen fired at close range from a motorbike and he died instantly.
"Ahmed was a very good undercover journalist and very experienced and did his work with a lot of precision".
Donald Trump to release findings of missile defense review
Still, Russia views United States missile defense advances as a threat and Trump's report is likely to stoke tensions with Moscow. US officials have said a space-based defense could help protect against weapons traveling at hypersonic speeds.
