19 year old du Daniel Asiedu has officially been charged with the murder of Hon. JB Danquah-Adu, the MP for Abuakwa North. He has, however, in his charge sheet, said that his main motive was never to kill the MP but to steal.
He went to the residence of JB Danquah at about 1:00am with a catapult, a cutter and a sharp knife. He used the sharp knife to tear through the iron fence at the blind side of the security man .
The suspect picked a ladder in the house and climbed to the porch of the top floor and entered the bed room through the window whilst the deceased was sleeping. He then began to search the room but the deceased woke up and held him. He stabbed deceased on the right chest above the breast. The deceased held the knife and shouted for help but no one came. The suspect pulled the knife through the deceased hands creating a deep cut in his palm.
The deceased, who was bleeding profusely fell by his bed helpless and the suspect stabbed him again on the right chest below the breast. The suspect, realizing that the deceased was almost dead left him and took away his two iphones and a tablet. He managed to descend from the top to the back of the house and climbed one of the poly tanks in the house and jumped over the electric fence into the adjoining house and escaped.
Hon. JB Danquah-Adu was murdered on February 9th at his house in Shiashie. The gruesome murder left the nation in shock as the opposition NPP expressed their concerns as to the capabilities of the police in solving the case.
With the suspect admitting to the act, much of the work is done and it is in the hands of the courts to carry out the sentencing.
