A Ghanaian undercover reporter who was shot dead in that country’s capital on Wednesday night has been buried.
Ahmed Hussein-Suale’s remains were lowered into the earth on Friday afternoon according to Islamic rights, local media reports said.
He was buried in Madina, an Accra suburb where he was shot three times by gunmen on a motorbike at about 10:00 p.m. Wednesday.
Anas Aremeyaw Anas, the investigative reporter who leads Tiger Eye Private Investigations firm where Mr Hussein-Suale worked, was amongst those who attended the burial, reports said.
A requiem was held shortly before the burial at the family home of the deceased, reports said.
MyNewsGh.com reported that relatives of the reporter, who exposed vast corruption in many sectors, including sports of late, were sobbing as he was being buried.
Mr Anas suspected that his colleague was assassinated, although motives were not immediately clear. The killing was widely condemned amongst media rights experts across the world.
Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has condemned the murder and urged urgent police investigations.
The police have not identified a prime suspect in the killing as of Friday afternoon, but Kennedy Agyapong, a politician of the ruling New Patriotic who had threatened Mr Hussein-Suale with violence prior to his murder, was reportedly questioned on Thursday.
