Stan Dogbe not involved - Police

 

There were rumours making rounds on social media and whatsapp of the presidential staffer being the mastermind behind the MP's death.

But a press release dated February 13, 2016 and signed by Police Director of Public Affairs Superintendent Cephas Arthur, said "the Police can state on authority that the suspect has never mentioned Mr Stan Dogbe or any politician’s name as of now”.

The Police service has therefore cautioned the public to desist from dangerous lies and half truths, since they have the potential of jeopardizing the investigation process."

"The Police Administration has not issued any statement on the result of the investigation being conducted so far, and therefore dissociates itself from stories being peddled regarding the interrogation of the suspect.

"The Police Administration wishes to entreat the public to desist from acts that border or criminality, as anyone arrested would be made to face the full rigours of the law, the statement added.

Meanwhile, the presidential staffer had earlier denied having any hand in the death of the late MP, JB Danquah Adu.

In a statement released on Saturday, February 13, 2016, Mr. Dogbe said “I cannot explain the deliberate silence of the Ghana Police Service in allowing what is a politically motivated and concocted story to fester throughout the day. But let me emphasise that: I have not been arrested by any security agency. I have not and have never been involved in any criminal act or with criminally-minded persons. I have not and have never offered anybody any inducement to commit any criminal act. I have never sent a threatening SMS or message to anybody involved in this matter and have no dealings whatsoever with any such persons. I have not been contacted by any security agency or officer in connection with any criminal act involving the murder of anybody.”

The Abuakwa North MP, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu was stabbed Tuesday dawn in his bedroom at his Shiashie residence in Accra.
