Family of the late JB Danquah-Adu is demanding police protection for Daniel Asiedu, prime suspect in the murder case of the late MP for Abuakwa North, after he claimed that he was contracted by the NPP to carry out the heinous act, according to rainbowraidioonline.com
The call comes after Daniel Asiedu aka Sexy Don Don on Wednesday said that he would name his contractors, who he claimed, are officials of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Reacting to the confession, spokesperson of the late MP’s family, Kweku Solomon, told rainbow radio that, the family sees Daniel Asiedu as their key suspect and his recent testimony is a major revelation hence the need for the suspect to be protected.
He appealed to the appropriate authorities that the food the suspect would eat and his overall care should be paramount in the case which has gathered steam after his new claim.
“We do not want to go back to court for him to come and tell a different story. If that should happen, we will conclude our long-held perception that, the death of our beloved family member is not being treated seriously. We want Daniel Asiedu to be protected,” he stressed.
Mr Asiedu told the court he was hired by some people in the NPP to kill the lawmaker on Wednesday, 20 June 2018.
He told the District Court presided over by Her Worship Arit Nsemoh that his “contractors” told him to indict certain persons in the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) instead of the NPP in the event of his arrest.
He is currently facing a committal process at the District Court for a murder trial at the High Court.
The Attorney General will therefore take account of his confession at the District Court and add it to the bill of indictment for the court to consider whether the state has a prima facie case against Asiedu for him to be tried for murder.
It is at the High Court that the jury will determine whether Asiedu is guilty.
The late J.B Danquah-Adu was murder at his Shiashie residence on 9th February, 2016 in Accra.
