Graphic description of how Ghana’s ant-graft crusader was killed has emerged. According to, an eyewitness who was at the scene of the murder of Anas’ partner, Ahmed, has given more details on events leading to his sad death. 

According to the eyewitness, Ahmed’s killers who rode on a motorbike followed him into a salon and fired two more shots at him after an earlier one. 

This is contained in a video sighted by on Citinewsroom. 

The eyewitness who spoke on conditions of anonymity revealed that Ahmed was earlier in the company of some friends including himself when he had a call and went over to move his car. 

However, as soon as he moved the car, the gunmen who were apparently monitoring his moves crossed the car and fired the first gun at him at a junction. 

According to the eyewitness, Suale, upon reaching the junction, slowed down and that was when the shot was fired. 

Out of desperation to save his life, the journalist was said to have driven backwards, losing control of the steering in the process, and as a result, crashed into a hairdressing salon across the road breaking its glass door.

The gunmen then pursued him right into the salon and fired two more shots at him killing him instantly. 

Following this, a man who stood by and saw what was happening decided to raise alarm, but one of the gunmen pointed his gun at him threatening to shoot if he made any noise. 

“So we all kept quiet because he was holding the gun in his face. We couldn’t say anything and they came for the motorbike and went away,” the eyewitness said sadly. 

He added that it was after the gunmen had sped off that they gathered the courage to call the police. 

The police, he revealed, said they could not come immediately because all their patrol cars had hit town. 

Therefore, the young men around tried stopping some taxis to help convey Suale to the hospital, but because it was a gunshot case, they all refused. Consequently, before help could come for Ahmed to be taken to the hospital, he had already died. 

According to this narrator, the gunmen had earlier been lurking in the area around 3:15 pm, however, no one suspected them.

“We saw them around 3:15 in the area but we didn’t pay attention to them. They waited till it was late before they killed him. I had my torchlight because it was late,” the eyewitness revealed. 

Meanwhile, controversial MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has called for the arrest of Anas. 

He said Anas’ ‘rushing’ to announce the death on social media giving all details leading to the death was premature and raised suspicions.

According to him, a text message available shows that Ahmed and Anas had had some misunderstandings recently which led to Anas killing him for falling out of the team. 

In a related development, some Ghanaians have slammed Anas for blaming Ken for the death, with other saying “he (Anas) cannot be trusted either”
