Identified as Ahmed Hussein Suale, the journalist was reportedly gunned down by armed men in Madina on Wednesday night.

Briefing the press on Thursday, the Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, noted that the incident was carried out by unknown assailant, adding that the Police have commenced investigation into the matter.

The killing came as a shock in Ghana, whose vibrant press enjoys relative freedom compared to many African nations.

Brother of the late Ahmed Hussein-Suale, Ibrahim Kamal confirmed the burial date in an interview with Accra-based Adom FM.

Anas in a message on his Facebook page announcing his demise said Suale was shot three times, twice on the chest and another on the neck.

Ahmed Husein was part of a team led by award-winning journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, whose probe led to the resignation of the head of the Ghana Football Association.
