Daniel Asiedu, the main accused person in the murder case of former Abuakwa North Member of Parliament, JB Danquah-Adu has told the court that he is being haunted by the ghost of the deceased.
According to Daniel Asiedu, he has had no peace since he killed the parliamentarian in February 2016.
He disclosed this in court today, Tuesday, March 10, 2020, during committal processes.
Daniel Asiedu confessed that he went to the house of the late MP to kill him and not to engage in robbery as stated as part of the charges levelled against him.
Daniel Asiedu further revealed that he was engaged by some persons within the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to commit the crime.
He told the court that those who contracted him to kill the MP allegedly assisted him to enter the house of the late MP with the assurance that he will be arrested but freed afterwards.
Murder of JB Danquah Adu
Daniel Asiedu and another person Vincent Bosso, have been charged with murder and abetment for the murder of the late MP.
Asiedu had earlier said that he went to the MP’s house to steal but ended up killing him in self-defence.
He subsequently withdrew these claims and stated that he had gone with the intention of killing the legislator.
The late J.B Danquah-Adu was stabbed to death on February 9, 2016, at his Shiashie residence in Accra.
Daniel Asiedu, who was the prime suspect, was arrested two days after the incident.
One other person was also arrested later in connection with the killing.
The murder of the former MP shocked many and led to discussions concerning the security of legislators.
