The International Federation of Association Football [FIFA] has called on the government to investigate the killing of Tiger Eye PI investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
Ahmed was shot dead at Madina in Accra on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.
The deceased was shot three times, twice in the chest and other in the neck.
According to reports, Ahmed was the lead investigator of the Tiger Eye PI team in the Number 12 video on corruption in Ghana football which led to the resignation of GFA president Kwesi Nyantakyi.
However, in condemning Ahmed's killing, FIFA in a statement said the World Football governing association is extremely disturbed and saddened by the death of Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
FIFA also promised its continued support to the investigative journalist whose work lead to the improvement of governance standards in all areas even outside football.

FIFA also extended their sympathies to the family of the slain investigative journalist and called for the relevant state authorities to interrogate the killing and to bring perpetrators of the ‘horrendous’ crime to face the law.
Meanwhile, 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 Ahmed.
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.”
