Barely 24 hours since the suspect of the JB Danquah murder, Daniel Asiedu, threatened to release the names of political figures who sent him to assassinate the late member of parliament, his lawyer has come out to say he (Daniel Asiedu), has mental issues.

Lawyer Yaw Obuor has argued that his client is a 'minor and mentally unstable' to mean the very words he uttered in court.

Yen.com.gh reported on how the embattled suspect revealed to the Accra District Court that he was hired by some powerful sources in the NPP to kill the legislator.

According to Daniel, he was also warned by these powerful forces to mention the name of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) should he be tried and interrogated in court.

But in spite of the promises and mouthwatering offers, JB Danquah's 'contractors' just fizzled out after his arrest.

“I can tell you and I’ve said it that he has a mental problem, I applied for bail for him last week but the bail was refused. He’s aware that we were going to apply for bail for him again, it will be filed early next week.” the lawyer told Joy FM.
