Filling Parliament in on the reasons why the case was not pursued further, Gloria Akuffo indicated that after an initial review of the docket by a team of prosecutors, the police were requested to furnish the office of the Attorney General with details.
According to Gloria Akuffo, although she asked the Tiger Eye team to present her with the said documents together with all videos on the investigations in March 2019, these details were made available to her office in May 2019.
“Unfortunately, Mohammed Suale, was tragically killed on January 16, 2019. The death of the journalist unavoidably stalled the preparation of the case.”
She, however, told Parliament that the review of the docket had been completed and that the case would be presented in court soon.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Graphic Online, the deceased was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck late Wednesday night, January 16, 2019, at Madina in Accra while he was driving home by unidentified men on a motorbike.
A disheveled Anas confirmed the sad development and loss of a core team member and a brother, to Graphic Online, hardly able to compose himself.
Ahmed was one of Tiger Eye journalists whose photographs, the member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, circulated in his 'Who Watches the Watchman' anti-Anas video documentary and called on the public to deal with him for a handsome reward.
