An Accra magistrates' court, on Wednesday, 19 September, summoned the Attorney General to explain the delay in commencing committal processes against the suspects accused of killing Abuakwa North legislator, J.B Danquah-Adu.

The magistrate gave the order after the representative for the Attorney General failed to appear in court for the third time to begin the process of moving the case to the high court for full trial to begin.

The case, which involves two suspects; Daniel Asiedu, a.k.a. Sexy Dondon; and Vincent Bosso, a.k.a. Junior Agogo, has recorded setbacks since the hearing began in September 2016.

The two suspects are facing charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.

The late J.B. Danquah-Adu was murdered at his Shiashie residence on 9 February 2016. The hitman gained access to the MP’s bedroom by climbing a ladder.
