US Congressman proposes travel ban on Kennedy Agyapong over Ahmed's killing

A Member of the US Congress Henry Johnson Jr. has proposed a travel ban on Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong, for his possible role in the murder of undercover investigator, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

The Congressman in a letter to the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, also recommends a ban on access to the U.S. banking system by Mr. Agyapong, his businesses, and any other appropriate and applicable sanctions.

According to Mr. Johnson, the “professional execution-style slaying of Mr. Hussein-Suale’s murder in the aftermath of Mr. Agyapong’s disgraceful threats raises serious and credible suspicions about the circumstances of this murder.”

In attacking Ahmed and his colleagues, Hon. Agyapong leaked his photo in his 'who watches the watchman' anti-Anas video documentary and called on the public to deal with him for a handsome reward.

The US Congressman is, therefore, demanding “a prompt and thorough investigation” into the possible role Mr. Agyapong’s utterances might have played in the gruesome killing of Mr. Hussein-Suale.

He further called for intelligence support for the Ghana government’s investigation of Mr. Hussein-Suale’s death, including potential Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI support via the Office of the Legal Attache at the U.S. Embassy in Accra.
