The prime suspect in the murder of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North Constituency, Daniel Asiedu, has for the second time accused some elements within the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) of contracting him to kill JB Danquah Adu.
He told an Accra Magistrate Court on Wednesday that he planned the murder with these individuals and was told to accuse the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the murder.
According to him, he has repented and is ready to speak the truth.
Daniel Asiedu last year – specifically June 20, 2018 – confessed in an Accra District Court that he had been contracted by the late MP’s own party members to have him killed. According to him, his “contractors” had abandoned him since he carried out the lot and was arrested.
For him, he was making the confession as a result of repentance from his previous life.
Meanwhile, the Court on Wednesday committed Daniel Asiedu, nicknamed Sexy Don Don, and one other accused, Vincent Bosso, to appear before the High Court for trial to commence.
Daniel Asiedu said his friend knows nothing about the case and had only been roped in because his name was mentioned in court as part of his friends.
The prime suspect, now 22, had asked for the intervention of the International Criminal Court (ICC) over his trial.
The murder was committed on February 9, 2016 at the Shiashie residence of the late MP.
