A year on since the demise of investigative journalist Ahmed Hussien-Suale questions are still been asked and raised over who is behind his dreadful murder.
As it could be recalled on Wednesday, January 16, 2019, at Madina in Accra, Ahmed-Suale was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck while he was in his car driving home.
There has been a probe carried out to find the true killers of Ahmed-Suale and in the quest, art impressions of the killers have popped up online kind courtesy international journalist, Guillaume Perrier though the assassinators haven’t been apprehended.
In this light, conclusions drawn from the private investigation alleges former CAF first(1st), Vice President and GFA president Akwasi Nyantakyi had a hand in the death of Ahmed-Suale following death threats he sent him.
International journalist Guillaume Perrier who undertook this probe on Akwasi Nyantakyi wrote this on his Twitter page:
“We also met former head of Ghana FA Kwesi Nyantakyi, banned for life by FIFA after being filmed by the investigative journalist pocketing $65,000 in a fake sponsor deal signed in Dubaï. And we can reveal that he also sent death threats to Ahmed Suale in 2018,” Mr Perrier tweeted.
“’ Be very careful! You can easily lose your life with that” he [Nyantakyi] said to Ahmed in a phone conversation. The recording of it is part of the criminal file but was not investigated by Ghana police,” Mr. Perrier further quoted the exact words that Nyantakyi allegedly used in menacing the murdered journalist in a phone conversation.
Nevertheless, Akwasi Nyantakyi has responded to the murder accusations leveled against him. He said in an interview with Ghanaweb:

“My conversation with Ahmed Suale actually took place in 2017. At the time I didn’t know he was an investigative journalist. I didn’t know he worked with Anas. I didn’t know he has set me up,”
“After spending over $25,000 on airline tickets and hotel fees in Qatar, Ahmed Suale switched off his phone and bailed on us. He scammed me, Kwame Ayew and a then West African presidential candidate.”
Contrary to the reports he warned Ahmed-Suale for scamming him of $25,000 which according to him he used to finance the trip to Dubai to meet a Qatari sheik, who he was made to believe was ready to sponsor the Ghana Premier League(GPL).
