Controversial Journalist Kelvin Taylor has dropped a picture of a man believed to be the bodyguard of Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, one Kudus, who social media users say looks like the sketched portrait of the suspected killers of Ahmed Suale, MyNewsGh.com can report.

Kelvin Taylor who may be insinuating a connection between the portrait and the attached picture of the alleged bodyguard of Kennedy Agyapong left his followers to draw conclusion while many warned him to desist from tampering with an on-going investigation.

Some of his followers believe the timing of the release of the portrait and the latest picture could be a scheme to point at Kennedy Agyapong as was the original intent when Anas released a quickly-edited video of Kennedy Agyapong.

Knowing how Anas was quick to point fingers at Kennedy Agyapong as a possible suspect few minutes after the murder of Ahmed Suale, some questioned if the portrait and its glaring resemblance with Kennedy Agyapong’s bodyguard could be trusted because the sketch was not done by the police but rather by Anas and his team.

Ghc100,000 bounty from Kennedy Agyapong

Mr Kennedy Agyapong last year offered a GH₵100,000 reward to any member of the public who will volunteer information that would lead to the arrest of the murderer or murderers of investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.

Mr Agyapong has been accused of masterminding the killing of Ahmed, says he is making the offer because his reputation is at stake.

Speaking on Net2 TV, the legislator said “It’s a human being that has died, no matter the mistake he has made, he has the right to live”.

“What I want to do is, anyone who can give information to assist in the arrest of the suspects will receive GH₵100,000 from me, because it’s my reputation on the line,” he added.

Mr Agyapong denied being behind the death of Ahmed despite inciting the public to attack the journalist in the wake of the #12 investigation that exposed corruption in Ghana football

Anas Coalition and the portrait

Ahmed was shot dead by unknown assailants who were riding on a motorbike whilst the journalist was in a moving car in his neighbourhood six-months after the premiering of Number 12, an investigative exposé into the Ghana Football Association.

The late Ahmed Hussein-Suale, according to Anas Aremeyaw Anas was a key producer of that investigative piece.

Anas Coalition in a Facebook post released an artist’s impression of the two men who allegedly murdered his colleague.

The Coalition said, “Anyone with knowledge of their whereabouts could kindly volunteer such information to the security services.”

Kelvin Taylor’s publication of the picture has sent many people wondering.

Threats

A renowned international journalist, Guillaume Perrier, has published findings of a private investigation into the murder of Ahmed Hussein Suale, alleging that the Ghana Police Service failed to follow up on a key lead.

Mr Perrier last week tweeted that his team of investigators have proof that former President of the Ghana Football Association (GFA), Kwesi Nyantakyi, sent death threats to the murdered undercover journalist and although the death threat has been filed, it was not pursued.

“We also met former head of Ghana FA Kwesi Nyantakyi, banned for life by FIFA after being filmed by the investigative journalist pocketing $65,000 in a fake sponsor deal signed in Dubaï. And we can reveal that he also sent death threats to Ahmed Suale in 2018.”

“Be very careful! You can easily lose your life with that’ he said to Ahmed in a phone conversation. The recording of it is part of the criminal file but was not investigated by Ghana Police,” Mr Perrier alleged.

The Adansi Hene, Opagyakotwere Bonsra Afriyie II have been accused of involvement in illegal mining at Adansi Hweremoase a community in the Adansi Asokwa District of the Ashanti Region.

The illegal Mining Galamsey menace has become a top challenge to the government as all measures to curb the infamous destroying of water bodies, natural resources and lands has been fruitless.

Ghanaians have witnessed the formation of “Operation Vanguard” with 400 security men which was made up of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) and the Police Service by President Akufo Addo, and also Galamstop initiated by the former Minister of Environment, Science, Technology and Innovation, Professor Frimpong-Boateng, all in 2017.

None of these teams were able to succeed the fight us expected by Ghanaians.

The current state of illegal Mining in the country is very disgusting and terrible which has led to the Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Hon. Abu Jinapor to halt even those doing prospecting legally.

Government has again embarked on the fight by burning any galamsey equipment including excavators which would be found on any galamsey site.

A video intercepted by www.ghanapublisher.com explains how the Adansi Hene is allegedly involved in the illegal mining going on at Adansi Hweremoase, a community under his command.

in the video, the narrator is heard to have said that, the Adansi Hene with his nephew and some opinion leaders of the town have joined to do illegal mining (Galamsey) which has destroy their lands and natural resources.

According to the narrator, It is the Adansi Hene who brought the excavators to the site to mine gold illegally.

The narrator added that, the Twafohene of Fomena is also part of the illegal mining going on in the area. The narrator who mentioned his name as Wofa K or Kwabena obeng, a native of Hweremoase said that, he consulted the assembly member of the area to confirm if he is aware of the happenings on the land but he said he has no idea of who is even mining there.

The National Security has busted a-13-member gang involved in the printing and distribution of fake currency notes to unsuspecting victims, mostly foreign nationals.

A statement issued by the National Security Secretariat, copied to the Ghana News Agency, said the gang, led by one Yassei Alia, a 45-year-old Syrian resident in East Legon, and owner of Hardford Auto Service in Accra, together with Danjuma Zakaria, alias Alhaji Mohammed, 49 and resident of Tema West, were rounded up in a warehouse within the premises of NacCharter Cargo and Freight Company, near KLM offices within the Kotoka International Airport, on Monday, April, 27 at around 5:30 pm.

Freshly printed $10,000 bundles of fake $100 notes concealed in two large metal trunks and a suitcase were retrieved from the warehouse.

The statement said the amount was estimated to be over five million United States dollars.

Other suspected accomplices arrested during the operation include Esther Omozeea, Emad Aldalhi, Kamal Mohammed, Abdulai Yakubu Osman and Samuel Ababio.

The remaining are John Denyo, Desmond Delali Dumenu, Alike Happiness, Prosper Chukwu, Victor Israel, Padi Christian Holdbrook.

It said in their caution statements, Yassei and Mohammed, who drove to the warehouse in the former’s car, denied knowledge of the deal.

It noted that however, when questioned separately, Yassei, who held a Syrian passport, a Republic of Guinea-Bissau diplomatic passport, and a Nigerian national driver’s licence issued in Ogun State, indicated that he had gone to the warehouse to have a discussion with one Kojo, an alleged cargo dealer and operator of the premises, regarding a V8 engine the latter was to import on his behalf, while Alhaji Mohammed stated that he had gone to solicit for financial help from Kojo to enable him procure a vehicle from Holland.

The statement said further, while Yassei claimed Kojo sat in a meeting with them on the said day, Alhaji Mohammed indicated that Kojo was not at the premises at the time of their visit and that while waiting for him, they were arrested.

It said incidentally, two of the suspects interrogated separately corroborated Mohammed’s claim that Kojo was not seen at the premises on the said day.

“The group’s modus operandi, according to intelligence, suggest that they lure unsuspecting victims with claims that they have access to millions of US dollars in Libya,” the statement said.

“Victims are given genuine sums of US dollars to spend for free, as a proof of the genuineness of the deal.”

It noted that once convinced, victims were requested to deposit huge sums of USD dollars as freight charges to aid the shipment of the said dollars to the victims.

It said upon receipt of amount, the suspects package fake dollars stashed in between a few hundreds of genuine notes, for onward delivery to their victims.

It said shortly after the arrest, one Bandoh, Alhaji-Ahmed, alias Alhaji Bamed, owner of Bamed Travel and Tours, who claims to be a Presidential Staffer at the Castle, and a client of Yassie, drove to the National Security headquarters, verbally assaulted the leader of the operation, and vowed to free the suspects.

It said the aggressive conduct of Alhaji Bamed, suggested that he might be involved in the deal, particularly when investigations are ongoing.

It said officials of National Security had assured Ghanaians that the Government was determined to rid the country of fake currency syndicates and warned that persons involved in the illegality would be arrested and dealt with accordingly.

The National Security has therefore urged the public to report suspicious activities of persons to security agencies to aid their arrest and prosecution.

Meanwhile, investigations continue.
