Investigative journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas says he has been left frustrated by the apathy shown by the police in the investigation of the murder of the late Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
According to him, the police has made little progress concerning the murder case, adding that they have developed 'cold feet'.
He said he has been forced to begin his own investigations because he is not satisfied by the work being done by the police.
Anas made the statement while speaking to the International Press Institute (API) on the matter.
"We [everyone involved in the investigation] were all targets - and we are still targets,” he said.
"Ahmed was a target because of the football investigation. I am not surprised, judging by the power of football and the political implications. There is some level of apathy within the police service - people are not forceful enough.”
The undercover reporter was shot by unknown assailants while driving home, reports said.
He was reportedly shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck by gunmen on motorbike around Madina.
Anas described the handling of the murder case as “power play”, insisting he suspects there are persons who are working to ensure that Ahmed’s killers are not found.

"We are not finding a solution to the murder. It is power play. The people in football are very rich people (and) there are some powerful sources making sure that we don't find the killer,” he said.
Anas added: "Ahmed is dead and we are still doing the hard-punching stories. It is a testimony that Ghana definitely will remain the beacon of democracy. People are strong-willed. People challenge government. And that is what is the future of democracy.”
"Out of the pain of his death, we are energized to leave a lasting impression for his memory, and tell things as they are. We are not deterred in any way. We are confident. We have the capacity to do even more than we used to do.”
