Augustine Obour, who is the lawyer for for Daniel Asiedu, told the court that his client had told him that he did not know "the second accused person from Adam", according to a report by graphic.com.gh.

The lawyer is said to have made that submission after the prosecution told the court that it had received a reply from the Attorney-General, seeking further clarification.

The case was adjourned to June 16.

The Daily Guide newspaper had earlier reported that Vincent Bosso was the real name of one Junior Agogo, who is believed to be one of the two men that Asiedu claimed recruited him for GHc2,000 for the murder of the MP. The other is named as Avenger.

Citing what it said was Asiedu's statement to the police, the paper said the three men drove to Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu's house in a taxi and entered with help from the security man.

The paper said the three men entered his bedroom through a window, using a ladder provided by the security man.

It said Asiedu claimed that it was Junior, and not him, who stabbed the MP to death.
