Authorities at Houston Airport detained New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Assin Central the Hon. Kennedy Agyapong for several hours over the death of journalist Ahmed Suale when he (Kennedy) landed for business in the United States last week.
In an interview monitored by MyNewsGH.com, Kennedy Agyapong himself admitted to his brief detention for more than 6 hours to answer questions about the death of Ahmed Suale, a protegé of Anas Aremeyaw Anas.
“I was detained for over five hours, I entered there around 3 and left around 8…,” he said, vowing to “drag Anas to the bottom of hell”.
“They asked me to sit step aside and ordered me to come in as they asked of my involvement in the death of Ahmed Suale…they said I directed people to beat him up which I answered that the fact that I asked people to beat him up didn’t mean I ordered his death…” he narrated.
According to him, they asked him if he wanted to call the Ambassador, and he told them “hell no” because he has committed no crime. He said the action has emboldened him to tear down “criminal” Anas whom he accused of blackmail.
The US Congress and FBI were allegedly petitioned by Anas following the murder which the Assin NPP MP has said he knows nothing about.
The Assin-Central MP himself offered a ¢100,000 reward to anyone who will volunteer information that would lead to the arrest of the killers of the investigative journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale.
