Ghana on Tuesday, February 5, 2016, woke up to the gruesome murder of the parliamentarian described by many as selfless. The sad incident happened at his East Legon residence.

JB Danquah Adu’s remains is expected to be laid in state at the forecourt of the State House today, April 15 for a state supported funeral.

Ahead of that, Hon Samuel Attah Akyea paying tribute to the late legislator in Parliament said, “If the blood of Abel is crying for revenge as the Bible says, then don’t give the wicked one peace. For certainly, your life was not equal to the value of a mobile phone.”

“This house has lost a gentleman of pleasant disposition. You will never believe whether he even had problems. He was always smiling. My political twin, ‘damirifa due’. Extend our greetings to Dr. Danquah,” he added.
