  |   Ghana News

Dozens of people gathered in Ghana's capital on Friday to pay tribute to an investigative journalist who was killed after helping to expose corruption in African football.

Ahmed Hussein-Suale, part of a team that carried out an undercover investigation, was gunned down in the Madina suburb of Accra on January 16.

The shooting was a rare assault on the press in Ghana, which prides itself as being one of the most stable democracies in an often turbulent region and a beacon of media freedom.

Many of the lawmakers, diplomats, politicians and journalists who gathered for the memorial called for justice to prevail.

"Hussein-Suale's case must be resolved and the perpetrators brought to book," said Roland Affail Monney, president of the Ghana Journalists Association where the ceremony was held.

"We call on the police to investigate this case thoroughly to ensure justice is served.".

Police on Thursday said they had arrested six people over the shooting but they had been granted bail.
