Speaking on Wednesday, June 20, 2018 at the Accra District Court, he stated that he now wishes to come clean and will therefore no longer hide the truth.
This was after the judge Arit Nsemoh, wondered if his confession was as a result of a promise or a threat.
He also stated that he has not seen or heard from his ‘contractors’ after his arrest.
Sexy Don Don disclosed that only one person from the NPP has visited him since his arrest and he is ready to reveal the names of the persons who contracted him if he is asked to.
The judge however informed him that as he is at the committal stage of the trial, he will not be released even if he confessed.
She explained that he can only provide evidence on what he is saying at the High Court, where proper trial will take place.
Asiedu was therefore asked to rethink the situation and consider whether he is willing to reveal more or wishes to retract his statement.
