The family of the late Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, former Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, have called on President Akufo-Addo to take an interest in his death.
According to a report by 3news.com, the family spokesman, George Amoah, explained that the president’s involvement in the matter will help unravel the truth surrounding the death and bring justice to them.
“We are calling on president because of his family ties, otherwise it will serve as a bad precedent in this country, that people die and the killers are free to walk about. It doesn’t augur well for the country,” he noted.

He added, “we can never understand ourselves as a family that a personality like JB should die such a death and then three years going, nothing has been done about it.”
He was emphatic that failure to find justice and the truth surrounding the alleged murder would set a precedent that people are killed and their assailant left free.
On the plea by the key suspect, Daniel Asiedu, seeking forgiveness from the family, Amoah said he must open up and speak the truth and that only God forgives entirely.
Speaking at a remembrance ceremony at Akyem Old Tafo in the Eastern Region, Amoah also invoked God to deal with perpetrators of the alleged murder of the late politician.
The solemn ceremony was led by Monsignor Alex Bobby Benson of the Catholic Diocese of Koforidua.
Family members of the late lawmaker as well as well-wishers were present at the ceremony, and they lit up candles and laid wreaths in his remembrance.
The late JB Danquah was murdered in his home February 9, 2016. He was a member of the Parliament of Ghana for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) between 2005 and 2009, and once more from 2013 until his death.
