Family of the late investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale, has clarified on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that they have not attributed the death to the Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong.
A cousin of the late journalist, Musah Mucas, told host Kwabena Agyapong that, “it is only the police that can come to that conclusion after a proper and thorough investigation has been conducted.”
According to him, the major concern or their challenge with the MP was the decision to unmask the journalist and expose him to danger on television.
He confirmed the late Suale started receiving death threats after the legislator blew his cover.
Meanwhile, he has appealed to Kennedy Agyapong to tone down because some of his utterances after the death of Suale are very provocative.
‘’He should behave as a honuorable MP of parliament so that we will accord him same respect.’’
‘’He exposed him to some degree of danger… Ken actually exposed him to high level of danger. That is what we blaming him for,’’ he added.
In his view, the Media Commission should have dealt with the television [Net 2] channel for using its medium to unmask the late Suale.
Parliament he said should have taken a disciplinary action against the MP over his decision to expose Suale to danger.
He further clarified the late Suale, reported the threats he received to the police and so claims by some individuals that he failed to report the matter are untrue.
He said Suale was unknown and people who were closer to him did not also know the kind of job he was doing until his cover was blown by Mr Agyapong.
‘’A lot of family members had no idea the kind of job he was doing until his pictures were shown,’’ he added.
The family he disclosed is trying its best to cope with the death of Suale because there ‘’is nothing we can do to bring him back and we believe it is the will of God.’’
He commended the police especially the IGP, David Asante Apeatu for his support.
