Former President Jerry John Rawlings has called for a swift and conclusive investigation into the murder of Tiger Eye's investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
In a tweet, the former President also condemned the 'reckless' action of Kennedy Agyapong in 'unmasking' Ahmed and other investigative journalists involved in the documentary; Number 12: When Misconduct & Greed Become The Norm.
"Ahmed Suale’s killing cannot be allowed to end up like others - unresolved. We have to get to the bottom of these questionable circumstances and their implications for our wider safety.
I support the call by the President and other opinion leaders for a swift and conclusive investigation. I am equally moved by a strongly worded letter by US Congressman Henry Johnson seeking Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s support for the investigation of Suale’s death.
We are here today largely because one man recklessly unmasked an investigative reporter and issued threats of violence" Mr Rawlings wrote.
Ahmed Hussein-Suale, was shot dead on Wednesday night at Madina in Accra by unidentified men on a motorbike and was buried on Friday in line with Islamic customs.
Ahmed hails from Wulensi in the Northern Region.
