Kennedy Agyapong, an Assin Central lawmaker, has stated that the alleged killer of investigative journalist Ahmed Suale, who goes by the name Ansu Gyeabuor, is not the one currently being circulated on social media.
He claims to have a photograph of the Ansu Gyeabuor he mentioned in his interview with Adinkra TV in the United States. “I have pictures of the Ansu Gyeabuo I was referring to, who the police claim killed Ahmed Suale.
“The image that is currently being circulated is not the one I was referring to,” he said on his television station on Wednesday, May 26.
He also urged “bloggers to double-check their facts before publishing images of people. ” On Monday, May 24, Ken Agyapong named Ansu Gyeabour as the suspect in the January 16, 2019 shooting of Ahmed Suale at his Madina residence.
The man whose image has been widely circulated has come out to deny the allegations. He claimed he didn’t even know the deceased, let alone plot his murder.
“Anyone who knows me knows I can’t even kill a fowl. Suale, Ahmed? [He said in Akan] I don’t know him. I deal in oil and gas. I work in the oil and gas industry as a trader.
I have no relationship with the media because oil and gas are not tomatoes that we advertise. We don’t even promote ourselves. I’m not sure who Ahmed is. I have no idea who the F*ck is. I don’t mind.”
He believes he was a “easy target” because he had a run-in with the law and the Ghana Police Service published his mug shot in a Wanted notice.
“My picture is plastered all over the place where I murdered [Ahmed Hussein-Suale].
“What if Ahmed’s [Hussein- Suale’s] family runs into me somewhere and stabs me? What will occur? What have you accomplished? I have three kids. Isn’t it stupid?
” He stated in a video that friends and family have been calling to check on him since the allegations were made public by the popular MP.
The MP was a suspect in the case because he had published pictures of the deceased on his television channel Net 2 TV a few days earlier, urging his followers to beat him up for monetary reward.
According to Harris Ansu Gyeabour, the issue he had with the police in January 2020 has been resolved, and the police have even apologized to him.
