Daniel Asiedu, the prime suspect in the murder of the late Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North Constituency, maintains that he was contracted by persons of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to commit the crime.
The suspect was arrested three years ago in connection with the gruesome murder of the late J.B. Danquah Adu.
Appearing before an Accra Magistrate Court on Wednesday, February 6, Daniel Asiedu, popularly known as Sexy Don Don, had some confessions to make.
According to reports, the suspect told the court that some elements of the ruling NPP contracted him to kill the late MP, and not the NDC as he earlier admitted.
When the presiding magistrate, Ms Arit Nsemoh, asked him who he was referring to as the contractors or planners of the MP’s murder, Asiedu said he could not remember their names, but he remembered that he wrote their names in one of his statements to the police.
“I have now given my life to God; I want to tell the truth so that the MP’s family will forgive me,’’ Graphic.com.gh reported the suspect as saying.
He further stated the second accused person, Vincent Bosso, was not part of the planning and execution of the MP’s death.
According to him, his “contractors” had abandoned him since he carried out the deed and was arrested.
This is the second time the suspect has confessed to having been contracted to commit the crime, having accused the NPP when appeared before an Accra District Court last year.
