J.B Danquah’s murder: NPP dares Daniel Asiedu to name his 'contractors'

The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has challenged Daniel Asiedu one of the suspects standing trial in the murder of the former MP for Abuakwa North Constituency, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu, Daniel Asiedu to name the members of the party he claims hired him to commit the crime.

Daniel Asiedu aka Sexy Dondon, on Wednesday told an Accra District Court that he was hired by some persons in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to kill the Legislator and was rather told to mention the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as his ‘contractors’ whenever he’s questioned about the crime. According to him, he was promised to be provided with whatever he asks for after he’s been able to carryout the assignment. He added that he’s still not heard from his “contractors”.

Daniel Asiedu who was arrested after he stabbed the late MP in his East Legon home while sleeping on the dawn of Tuesday February 9, 2016, told the court that only one person from the NPP has visited him since his arrest and is ready to mention the names of the persons who contracted him if he is asked to.

But the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Nana Obiri Boahen who has followed the case in court in an interview with host Akwasi Nsiah on Si Mi So on Kasapa FM described Daniel Asiedu as a dishonest character whose words should not be taken seriously.

He said the suspect has not been consistently with his statements about his involvement in the murder making his not a credible character.

“We need to be serious and not waste our time on such baseless allegations, he should mention the name of the persons he claims contracted him to commit the murder. This guy has not been consistent. Initially when he was caught he told the police that he knew nothing about the crime, later he said it was the NDC who contracted him and now he’s saying it’s the NPP. Can you take such a person seriously?
