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.

Ahmed body has reportedly been taken to the Police Hospital Morgue and will be buried soon.
