Ahmed’s killing: “Mr. Kennedy Agyapong must be arrested” – Minority in Parliament


The Minority in Parliament has called for the arrest of the Member of Parliament for Assin Central and Chairman for the Parliamentary Select Committee on Communications, Mr. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, over the murder of an undercover investigator of Tiger Eye PI, Mr. Ahmed Hussein-Suale.


The Minority stated that Mr. Agyapong should promptly be arrested and prosecuted for public instigation of violence on Mr. Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Mr. Ahmed Hessein-Suale, leading to the death of Mr. Hussein-Suale.

At a press conference organised in Parliament by the Minority, Spokesperson for the Minority on Interior and Defence and Member of Parliament for Builsa North, Mr. James Agalga, pointed out that Mr. Agyapong bears some criminal responsibility for the death of Mr. Hussein-Suale.

He again added that Mr. Agyapong also bears criminal responsibility for instigating the public to beat up Mr. Hussein-Suale and cause harm to Mr. Anas for monetary reward.

Mr. Agalga lamented that Mr. Agyapong has abetted several offences ranging from assault, causing harm, causing harm with the use of an offensive weapon, attempted murder and murder by instigating the public against Tiger Eye PI.

Mr. Agalga indicated that in the operations of the laws of the country, the offence of abetting a crime through instigating violence is committed even if no member of the public lifts a finger in furtherance of the invitation.

In justifying his position for the arrest of the Assin Central MP, Mr. Agalga referred to Section 20(1) of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 29), indicating Mr. Agyapong should be arrested for his consistent reckless statements and threats.

Mr. Agalga recalled that upon the advertisement by Tiger Eye P.I. of the airing of the documentary entitled “Number 12 – When Greed and Corruption Become the Norm”, Mr. Agyapong, commenced a tirade against Mr. Anas in particular and his Tiger Eye P.I. team members.

He reiterated that Mr. Agyapong vowed to destroy Mr. Anas and his team if the documentary is aired but Mr. Anas called off Mr. Agyapong’s bluff and proceeded to air the documentary in various locations in Ghana and on local and international media.

Mr. Agalga further explained that Mr. Agyapong then went further and splashed pictures purporting to be the images of Mr. Anas and Mr. Hussein-Suale on Net 2 TV and on the Internet and, also invited the general public to cause harm to the two investigators for monetary compensation.

Thereafter, he added that Mr. Agyapong indicated the residence of Mr. Hussein-Suale and declared that he was prepared to pay any member of the public who would beat him up.

“Sadly, in this case, Mr. Ahmed Hussein-Suale was shot dead in cold blood. One cannot help but point to Mr. Agyapong’s express and televised instigation of the public to visit violence on Ahmed for monetary reward. And in a public show of impunity and bravado the morning after Hussein-Suale’s assassination, Mr. Agyapong went from one radio station to another daring law enforcement agencies to arrest him. He went to the extent of preposterously accusing Mr. Anas and the lawyer for Tiger Eye P.I. of complicity in Ahmed’s death while raining insults and invectives on them”, he revealed.

Mr. Agalga concluded that the conduct of Mr. Agyapong could not have escaped the notice of the law enforcement agencies, and that the Minority finds the situation deeply worrying and uncharacteristic of a democratic and civilised country
