- The police have said they won’t succumb to pressure to arrest anyone following the murder of Ahmed Hussein-Suale
- The director general of police public affairs said he got over 100 calls daily from people pressurizing him to arrest Ken Agyapong and others
- He said the police won’t be moved to make any arrests without evidence
The police have revealed that they won’t be pressured into arresting anyone without evidence in the wake of the unfortunate murder of Ahmed Suale, Anas’ partner.
The director general of police public affairs, ACP David Eklu, said despite pressure from the public and media, the police won’t be pushed into making arrests.
This is contained in a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Citinewsroom.com.
Ahmed was shot in cold blood on the night of Wednesday, January 16, 2019, by unknown assailants who trailed him into a salon and shot him in the neck.
Since then, no arrest has been made, and the public and media seem not satisfied with the police behaviour concerning the death.
Some have called for the head of NPP MP Kennedy Agyapong, whiles others have said they suspected Anas.
But ACP Eklu said there are investigations on going and they are all following processes.
According to him, he got over 100 calls daily from people who are in haste for arrests to be made, especially Agyapong and Nyantakyi, who was disgraced by Anas’ ‘Number 12’ which Ahmed was said to have played a crucial role in.
Agyapong, on the other hand, splashed photos of Ahmed in the media thereby exposing him to public harm.
“We are going one by one, eliminating and flagging suspects. Sometimes it’s better you are sure about the quality of information you get rather than rushing to please the media.”
“The way the media want it, it doesn’t happen in real policing that way. I’ve had over a hundred calls asking me when we are arresting Kennedy Agyapong because the media wants that news while that might even divert attention from what we are actually looking for,” ACP Eklu said.
He reiterated that both Agyapong and Nyatankyi, as well as other persons, have been interrogated on the matter, but he was tight-lipped on whether Anas himself had been questioned or not.
ACP Eklu further reiterated the police’s commitment to finding the killers.
He added that the police were also engaging the services of a cartographer to provide an impression of the suspects, but that is in the process of being done because they want to be sure that the description is accurate.
Meanwhile, a leaked Whatsapp message showed how Ahmed had feared for his life when he was alive.
The message also revealed how someone in particular was planning to have him killed.
