Police invites Ghana MP over the murder of journalist
The Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Ghana Police Service has officially invited Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament for Assin Central over the murder of Ahmed Hussein- Suale, an investigative reporter and the partner of Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“Slap him, in fact, beat him, anything that happens I will pay,” Agyapong said in the viral video.
Meanwhile, before his official invitation to the CID, Kennedy Agyapong has said that he knows, and have nothing to do with the killing.
It was reported that during a morning show on NEAT FM ‘Ghana Montie,’ he said that the journalist never offended him while he was still alive pointing out that the opinion being circulated on the social media about his connection with the killing is quite unfortunate.
“A friend called to tell me that there is something trending on the social media that I engineered the killing of one Ahmed, first of all, the guy has never offended me in any way,” he said.
He said that he could not fathom why he would engineer the killing of a person who is irrelevant in his life as he is well placed and sees no reason why he would want to murder Hussien- Suale.
“This boy is irrelevant to my life. Why would I be stupid and order people to kill him looking at how far God has brought me? He has not offended me in any way. They should look for those who may be behind this heinous act. This is just cheap propaganda.”
Although no links have been drawn between the Agyapong’s call to violence and the Wednesday evening murder, the police has promised to leave no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of the murder as all persons suspected to be linked to the killing will be invited to assist in the investigation.
Agyapong is only invited as a person of interest, the police authorities have said.
