Ahmed Suale’s killers will face justice – AG assures

The Attorney General and Minister for Justice, Godfred Yeboah Dame, has assured that the killers of investigative journalist, Ahmed Suale, will surely face justice.

Addressing Parliament on various matters in response to some questions filed by some members of the House, the Attorney General said everything is being done to ensure that the killers of Ahmed Suale are arrested and prosecuted.

“Pursuant to further request for information on the state of investigation, a second investigation docket was received by my Office in 2023. The docket indicated that investigations into the case are still ongoing, and the identities of the perpetrators were still outstanding. No identifiable suspects have been found yet.“

Mr Godfred Yeboah Dame disclosed to Parliament that there have been extensive investigations conducted on the Ahmed Suale matter, some even beyond the shores of Ghana by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI).

He revealed that the United States Government was contacted through the American Embassy in Accra to undertake a forensic examination of some devices which were used by the deceased before his gruesome murder.

He added that there were also some investigations into the said devices by the Department of Geomatic Engineering at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.

The Attorney General also provided updates on high-profile murder cases including the murder of Ahmed Suale, Fennec Okyere, JB Danquah, Shadrack Arloo, Major Maxwell Mahama, and Prof. Benneh.

Length of Time of the Investigations

The Attorney-General expressed his sympathies with the family of the late Ahmed Suale on the length of time taken for the investigations so far but indicated that some murder cases indeed take time to resolve.

He cited the example of the murder of the legendary American rapper, Tupac Shakur, who was murdered in the mid-90s but whose murderer was established by the United States authorities only a few months ago.

“Just like the murderer of the late Tupac Shakur, justice will surely catch up with the murderers of Ahmed Suale. Mr. Speaker indeed the government is fully committed to ensuring that the murderers of the late Ahmed Suale are found and brought to book. ”
