Two suspects in JB Danquah-Adu's murder trial "discharged"

By Justice Kofi Bimpeh

An Accra High Court has discharged two suspects standing trial for the murder of the Abuakwa North MP JB Danquah-Adu.

Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bossu, were discharged Tuesday morning following a submission of nolle prosequi by the Attorney General.

On 9 February 2016, some unknown assailants murdered the late MP in his room at his Shiashie residence.

Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bossu were arrested subsequently, arraigned before court and charged with the murder. They pleaded not guilty to the charge.

The discharge follows calls by his successor on parliament, for fresh investigations into the gruesome murder.

Speaking on the floor of parliament on Thursday February 9 as part of the one-year anniversary of the killing of the former legislator, Abuakwa North MP Gifty Twum Ampofo, said: “The house should immediately reengage the police and the house should demand fresh investigations into the matter.”

The family of the late MP continue to demand justice from the Akufo-Addo led government.
