Ahmed’s Killing Is a Blot On Ghana’s Reputation – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has condemned the unlawful killing of an investigative journalist by unidentified gunmen in Accra on Wednesday.

Addressing delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Koforidua in the New Juaben South constituency on Thursday, Mr Mahama said his heart was heavy after learning that Mr Ahmed Hussein-Suale, a journalist who worked with Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye P.I. was shot dead whilst on his way home in Accra on Wednesday.

The former President said “journalists should not be killed in cold blood because of the work they do”, adding that it is a blot on Ghana’s reputation as a beacon of democracy in Africa.”

Mr Mahama noted that similar unlawful killings in the recent past have created a state of fear and panic.

He therefore called on the state security institutions to do more to protect the citizenry.
