The Family of late Ahmed Suale has disclosed that Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team have taken the responsibility to support the education of the child of their former colleague who was killed a year ago, ABC News can report.
The family added that they also receive support from other generous individuals and close relations in sponsoring the children through school.
Ahmed Suale, until his death, was a key member of Anas Aremeyaw Anas’ Tiger Eye PI which conducted undercover investigations into several institutions including the Ghana Football Association where their Number 12 documentary into alleged corruption led to its dissolution in July 2018.
In an interview with ABC News, the spokesperson for Ahmed Suale’s family, Mustapha Iddrisu, confirmed the assistance the child receives from Tiger Eye and lauded the gesture.
“The support is coming from tiger eye P.I, friends and some family members. If you have a child and the child possibly is in school and somebody that I would like to take care of the children in school I think it’s good so Tiger Eye comes in from time to time in order to support them” spokesperson said.
It has been reported that Ahmed Suale was shot three times, twice in the chest and another in the neck Wednesday, January 16, 2018, at Madina in Accra while driving home by unidentified men riding a motorbike.
According to Mustapha Iddrisu, the family, particularly, the wife of the late Ahmed Suale, has found it difficult to come to terms with his demise.
Recounting the final engagement the wife had with her late husband, he noted, “Today being the one year will be a day that she is going to remember that it was on this date that my son wasn’t feeling well and I asked that their father (Ahmed Suale) is called in order for him to be taken to the hospital, only for us to get the information that their father is no more”
“So it is tough but they are coping. We are Muslims and we keep telling them that Allah gives, Allah takes and for that matter, they should keep on,” he added.
Government has commenced investigations into his death. The Ghana Police Service has this morning released artistic impressions of two suspects arrested in connection to the crime.
The family and Anas Aremeyaw Anas have both suggested that their investigation lacks a sense of urgency.
