The Police administration says it has interrogated 13 suspects in connection with the murder of a journalist with investigative firm, TigerEye PI, Ahmed Hussein Suale.
The Director of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Maame Tiwaa Addo-Danquah said one key suspect is currently being held on remand in police custody. Some reports had suggested that the suspect in custody was spotted at the crime scene before the act was committed and went into hiding only to resurface last week.
The Brong Ahafo Regional Vice Chairman of the NPP, Kwame Baffoe alias Abronye DC recently alleged on Net 2 TV that the suspect in police custody is the one who pulled the trigger on Ahmed Suale.
He also alleged that another suspect who was arrested by the police and sent to the Kotobabi Police station was released after allegedly bribing the police.
But the CID boss said the claims were untrue.
She explained that an informant reported to the police that an alleged perpetrator of the crime had been spotted at a pub within the Kotobaabi community, an unarmed police officer went to effect arrest of the suspect but he encountered strong resistance from the suspect and some persons in the area.
According to DCOP Tiwaa Addo-Danquah, a patrol team the officer called for, did not arrive early and upon sensing the aggression being displayed by the suspect and those around, retreated. She, however, gave assurances that the police are working hard to unravel the circumstances surrounding the murder.
