Vice Prez, Nana Addo mark one-week anniversary of JB's death

Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has joined family and friends to mark the first week of the passing of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu.


The Abuakwa North MP, was stabbed last two weeks in his bedroom at his Shiashie residence in Accra.

The Vice president who was at the one-week event said “Ghana is the loser” of the tragic incident.

“This is one crime that is impossible to explain, the motive is lost to almost everybody. All we know is that it has terminated the life of a promising man. A career has been cut short. Ghana is the loser,” Mr. Amissah-Arthur wrote in a tribute.

Other members at the one-week event were government dignitaries, as well as members of the opposition New Patriotic Party, including its flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.


Meanwhile, a suspect, 19-year-old teenager Daniel Asiedu, has been charged with murder of the late MP by an Accra magistrate court.

Asiedu has since been remanded into police custody and the case adjourned to the 1st of March 2016.
