Contract Killing

The MP who is a close friend of the deceased politician criticized the security detail at JB Danquah’s residence for being lax. According to him, the security man saw a ladder stretched across the wall in front of the house at least an hour before the politician returned home Tuesday dawn. The father of two entered his home and his bedroom upstairs while his family were downstairs asleep.

Atta Akyea said the security men while making nocturnal rounds saw shifty movements in the politician’s bedroom. The suspected assailant moved a curtain and closed the window.

According to a Joy FM report at the time, Mr Atta Akyea said the security men were afraid and made no attempt to close in on the attacker, Atta Akyea continued. Although they called in the police, no further attempt was made while the security officers were yet to come to help.

“They were not wise enough to surround the building…so the guy knowing that they were standing in front of the house, tactically fled through the back.”
In his haste, the assailant jumped outside the back wall and fled. The Police were called in after 1:30am. JB Danquah’s body was found in a pool of blood.
Atta Akyea says the murder has signs of a contract killing.

The assailant “timed him well [and] came for him,” and was given instructions to “go do this singular thing and finish this man off.”
