AN undercover journalist, known for exposing corruption in Ghanaian football, has been shot dead as he drove home.

According to BBC Africa, Ahmed Hussein-Suale was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck in the Accra suburb of Madina at about 11 pm on Wednesday (Jan 16).

His body has reportedly been taken to the Police Hospital Morgue and will be buried soon.

Ahmed Hussein-Suale was a member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations and had investigated corruption in Ghana's football leagues. His undercover reports exposed football figures accepting cash gifts, which ultimately led to the ban of the former head of Ghana’s Football Association

This follows Ghanaian MP Kennedy Agyapong calling for retribution against Hussein-Suale, saying: "If he comes here, beat him. Whatever happens, I'll pay." The shocking comments originate from a video featuring Mr. Agyapong which was circulated online and featured on Ghana’s Web. In the video, he is reportedly also heard describing Hussein-Suale as a criminal.

The police have now launched an official investigation into Hussein-Suale’s death, and according to the CID, it is following all leads, indicating that all persons suspected will be invited to assist in the investigations.
