This follows a comment he made before Ahmed was murdered by two masked men at his Madina residence on January 16 2019.

In response to the #Number 12 exposé on corruption in Ghana football, Mr Agyapong said Ahmed is a bad boy and told his staff to beat him up if he comes around because he will secretly set cameras in the building.

But speaking on Accra-based Neat FM, hours after the murder, Mr Agyapong said he is well placed and will gain nothing should he take away the life of the investigator.

According to him, “This boy is irrelevant to my life. Why would I be stupid and order people to kill him looking at how far God has brought me? He has not offended me in any way. They should look for those who may be behind this heinous act. This is just cheap propaganda.”

“I don’t live a low life. I am focused on everything that I do, that is why I am very loud when I am arguing. I don’t compromise on anything. Ahmed has not done anything to me because I am not part of the people he set up'', he added.

Meanwhile, in connection with Ahmed's murder, some six persons have been granted bail after they were arrested.

The Police also revealed that Kennedy Agyapong, former Ghana Football Association (GFA) President, Kwesi Nyantakyi, Investigative journalist, Anas Arimeyaw Anas have also provided statements in connection with the case.
