An undercover journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, who was part of the crew that exposed suspended Super Eagles assistant coach, Salisu Yusuf in alleged bribe taking, has been murdered in his home country, Ghana.
Footballive.ng learnt that the investigator, who was a key member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations team led by Anas Aremeyaw Anas, was shot three times in the chest by unknown gunmen in Accra.
A source in Anas’ crew confirmed that the attack on Hussein-Suale, by unidentified men on motor cycles, happened while he was driving home on Wednesday night.
He was shot twice in the chest and once in the neck in the Accra suburb of Madina close to midnight.
The Anas team added that the deceased’s body has been taken to the Police Hospital Morgue and could be buried according to Islamic rites.
Suale would be remembered mostly in Nigeria for the part he played in exposing Yusuf in a video footage.
His hidden camera caught Yusuf apparently accepting a bribe of $1,000, to ensure two players made the Nigerian team for the Championship of African Nations (CHAN 2018) in Morocco last July.
Tiger Eye’s journalists also exposed former president of Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi for corrupt practices, culminating in his ban by global soccer sanctioning body, FIFA.
Another source, who also spoke about the journalist’s alarming death, disclosed: “He was just shot and killed, nothing was taken from him.”
