Meanwhile, the brother of the deceased journalist has expressed his disappointment in the security services and the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia led NPP administration for not doing enough to bring the perpetrators to book.
In an interview with Accra based Citi FM, Ibrahim Kamilu Tahidu said the Attorney General does not even remember the date his brother Ahmed Hussein-Suale was murdered.
“In fact, the family is very disappointed in the security services and the government itself. It looks like they are not interested in the case. After all the noise, have you heard of anything again? And have you heard of any government official discussing it again? Even [in parliament] the Attorney General could not remember the date my brother was assassinated. Doesn’t that alone ring a bell that the government is not interested in our case?” he asked.
