Second suspect in JB Danquah murder case remanded by court

JB Danquah suspectOne more person has been put before a District Court  in Accra in connection with the murder of the late Member of Parliament  for Abuakwa North, Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu.

Vincent Bosso was arraigned Tuesday on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder and has been remanded to appear again on May 18.

He becomes the second person to be put before court in the murder of the MP at his residence at Shiashie in Accra on February 9. The Police arrested Asiedu February 11 as the prime suspect in the murder of the 52-year-old MP.

Prosecutors say Bosso aided Asiedu to gain access to the room of the late MP with the use of a ladder.

It is not clear where and how Bosso was arrested. Such information is yet to be revealed to the court, TV3 has gathered.

How he was murdered

Prosecutors told the court hearing the case of Asiedu that the MP was sleeping  when he woke up to find the accused person ransacking his bedroom so held him, but in an attempt to escape, the accused stabbed the MP.

According to prosecutors, Asiedu stabbed the  deceased on the right chest above the breast before pulling the knife through the MPs hands creating “a deep cut in his palm”

Although the MP fell by his bed helpless, prosecutors told the court that the accused “stabbed him again on the right chest below the breast” as he bled to death.

The accused “realising that the deceased was almost dead, left him and took away his two iPhones and a tablet” before escaping through the back of the house, the court heard.
