JB Danquah 'killer' to petition ICC to name NPP members who contracted him
J.B Danquah Adu was stabbed to death on the night of Tuesday, February 9, 2016, at his Shiashie residence in Accra.
During the trial at a district court presided over by Her Worship Ms Arit Nsemoh on Thursday, July 26, Asiedu shouted and demanded to speak after the court had prevented him from continuing with his usual confessions.
He shouted: "I have the right to speak .... money cannot buy everything, but there is power above power."
He also alleged that Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen, knows about the death of the late MP and must speak before he is exposed.
On Wednesday, June 21, 2018, he told the court that he was contracted by some people within the NPP to kill the man who was a member of the same party.
The accused who voluntarily made the confession at the district court said he was contracted by some personalities within the governing New Patriotic Party NPP to kill the former MP for the Abuakwa North constituency.
According to him, the said person after his arrest urged him to accuse certain persons within the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of contracting him.
Daniel Asiedu added that the said NPP officials later promised to release him when they win power in the 2016 general elections but have failed to fulfill their promise.
The accused Daniel Asiedu and one other person Vincent Bosso, have been charged with murder and abetment of the murder of the late MP.
The prime suspect, Daniel Asiedu was arrested two days after the incident. The accomplice was picked several weeks later.
