An Accra High Court has set May 16, 2017 for selection of jurors for the trial of Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bossu, accused of murdering Abuakwa North MP JB Danquah-Adu.

The court had earlier ordered Daniel Asiedu, the prime suspect, to get a lawyer for the trial.

The order came after he told the trial judge, Justice Lawrence L. Mensah, that he does not know the whereabouts of his lawyer.

The judge, in giving the order, said the case is a serious one which requires that he and his other accomplice, are well represented.

He was charged with murder when arraigned after his arrest and allegedly confessed to stabbing the late MP in his residence which led to his death.

Despite his confessions, another suspect was arrested later as an accomplice.

But the teenager said he entered the MP’s house to steal but not to kill.

According to him, he had to stab the MP who held him tight during a struggle.

Meanwhile, the family of the late J.B Danquah-Adu has petitioned President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to launch fresh investigations into the circumstances leading to his death.
