ahmed Hussein-Suale Divela
In January, 2019, Ghanaian investigative journalist Ahmed Divela was gunned down on the streets of the capital city, Accra.
He worked for the website Tiger Eye Private Investigations, where he had helped to expose high-level corruption in the soccer association of Ghana. One of those implicated in the scandal was a politician named Kennedy Agyapong.
Agyapong had publicly threatened Divela in 2018, calling on people to attack the journalist. The politician also attacked the Tiger Eye website and its publisher, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, who he called a troublemaker.
Anas, who covers his face when in public in order to protect his identity, condemn the killing of his colleague and promised to continue his investigative work.
