The Committee for the Protection of Journalists called for an immediate investigation and for Ghanaian authorities to "ensure that threats against the press are taken seriously".

He was a member of Tiger Eye Private investigations led by award winning Ghanaian journalist Anas Aremeyaw Anas, and together they had investigated corruption in Ghana's football leagues, one of which led to a lifetime ban for the former head of Ghana's Football Association a year ago. The Confederation of African Football, the continent's top soccer body, banned or suspended almost two dozen referees and officials because of Anas' team's work.

In a press release, Tiger Eye said they were "terribly devastated by the dastardly act", but were "unshaken" in their pursuit of "nation-wreckers".

Reacting to the death of Suale, Anas posted a video in which the Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong was issuing threats and wrote "Sad news, but we shall not be silenced".
