Ahmed Hussein-Suale, who was part of the undercover journalist crew that exposed suspended Super Eagles assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf, over alleged bribery, has been murdered in his home country, Ghana.
According to Footballive.ng, the investigator, who was a key member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations team led by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was shot three times in the chest by unknown gunmen in Accra.
A source in Anas’ crew confirmed that the attack on Hussein-Suale, by faceless men on motor cycles, happened while he was driving home on Wednesday night.
He was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck in the Accra suburb of Madina about midnight.
The Anas team added that the deceased’s body has been taken to the Police Hospital Morgue and may well be buried according to Islamic rites.
Suale’s hidden camera caught Yusuf apparently accepting a bribe of $1,000, to ensure two players made the Super Eagles team for the Championship of African Nations (CHAN 2018) in Morocco last July.
Another source who also spoke about the journalist’s alarming death said: “He was just shot and killed, nothing was taken from him.”
