Not too long ago, the “Number 12” was the talk of the town.It was the scandal that led to the total obliteration of the Ghana Football Association(GFA) and eventually, it brought down some leading government officials including the then(GFA) boss, Kwesi Nyantakyi.
If my memory serves me well, the media peddled in this issue for quite some time as is custom to the media landscape here in our country. As it was expected, some people were fingered as part of the whole brouhaha and notable of all was the Assin Central Member of Parliament, Mr. Kennedy Agyapong.
Well, we all know what happened, as Mr. Kennedy announced that he had a counter evidence to what Anas Aremeyaw Anas had shown to us all and which he hilariously called “who watches the watchman”. That evening I sat behind my TV-set to as it may catch a glimpse of what our honourable Member of Parliament had to show us all in efforts of wadding off some accusations.
Lo and behold, there it was, a mammoth of a crowd gathered at the Ken city premises waiting patiently to see the premiere of the much anticipated Kennyhood movie.
It was quite discouraging when after hours of seemingly senseless motion of images that made absolutely no sense on a huge screen to the masses, and all that was spelt on the faces I saw was DISAPPOINTMENT.
Fast forward, the scandal uprooted Kwesi Nyantakyi and even rid the Football Association of its decadence. All thanks to one man and his Tiger Eye PI team.
Most of us have even forgotten about the scandal that shock the entire country but we woke up to the news of the death of one Ahmed Hussein Suale who we have come to know had been a member of the feared Tiger Eye PI Team.
Most of us would agree that he was the only member of the team we could easily put a face to his name which was quite out of the tenets of the Investigative Journalism Profession but that can’t be all his fault as Mr.Kennedy Agyapong had been the source of all that we knew about Ahmed.
Then few days ago,Ahmed Hussein Suale was in the news but this time not being advertised by Mr. Kennedy,this time he was the news.
This is how one news paper reported the incident.
“A member of the Tiger Eye PI Team who’s name has been given as Ahmed Hussein Suale has been shot dead by an unknown assailants in Madina”.
