Just In: Investigative journalist shot dead in Ghana

A Ghanaian undercover journalist has been shot dead as he drove home, after a politician called for retribution against him.

Local media reports say unidentified men on motorbikes shot Ahmed Hussein-Suale three times in the capital Accra.

He was a member of Tiger Eye Private Investigations and had investigated corruption in Ghana’s football leagues.

The undercover report on cash gifts led to a lifetime ban for the former head of Ghana’s Football Association.

BBC Africa Eye made a documentary about the scandal in 2018 after gaining access to the investigation led by controversial journalist Anas Aremayaw Anas, who runs Tiger Eye.
