On the night of January 16, 2019, Tiger Eye Private Investigations team member, Ahmed Hussein-Suale was gunned down at Madina, a suburb of Accra by unknown assailants on a motorbike.
Investigations have commenced but the brouhaha surrounding the killing of one the members of a famous undercover journalism team was bound to raise brows and voices.
Accusing fingers have largely been pointed in the way of Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong. The MP, a few months ago, made the identity of the deceased known and called for his beating.
This indiscretion on the part of Agyapong was something TIger Eye boss, Anas Aremeyaw Anas did well to remind everyone about after Hussein-Suale's killing.
Many have jumped on the Anas bandwagon, including United States politicians. But although a blame game is easy, YEN.com.gh argues that it was wrong for Anas to have intimated Agyapong had a hand in the murder.
1. Anas had no time to wait for the police
Barely before the body had gotten to the morgue, Anas had someone in mind to blame for his colleague's death. The pain Anas would have been feeling is quite understandable.
But he ought to have been aware of the sort of craziness that would follow if he blamed anybody at all. In these matters, you wait for the authorities to have the first word.
2. Anas has put the police and the government in a dangerous place
As things stand, it would be difficult to convince the Anas believers that Kennedy Agyapong had nothing to do with the killing.
Anas has kicked off an almost irreversible situation. Should investigations take longer or any other person but Agyapong found culpable, it may still not go down well with many people.
3. Anas looked like a petty man
There is tension between the MP and Anas. The two have hit each other with cases in court.
To hurriedly cite Agyapong's loose comments as somehow connected to his friend's killing, Anas looked like a petty man. You would have thought he understood the due process of fairness.
4. Anas might have put Agyapong's life in danger now
Some might say it is a payback in Agyapong's own coin. Putting together Agyapong's comments and the death of his friend, Anas might have made Agyapong a target for unscrupulous people.
Already, the family of the deceased have given ultimatum as to when investigations should point to someone. As things stand, we can bet that they have just one name in their head.
