The family of the late JB Danquah has vowed to treat the murder of their beloved son traditionally as the judicial service keeps delaying fair justice for the fallen MP.
According to Solomon Danquah Adu, who is the nephew of the deceased politician, the family seeks to visit the famous Anto shrine to ascertain details of the case.
It will be recalled that J.B. Danquah-Adu was murdered on February 9, 2016, by some armed people who made their way into his room in his Shiashie residence in Accra. Although Daniel Asiedu, 19, who was immediately arrested in connection with the murder has been on trial from that time.
The murder of the former MP sent shock waves through the country and the international community and led to many discussions concerning the security of legislators.
Daniel Asiedu who was the prime suspect was arrested two days after the incident with his accomplice picked several weeks later.
Since then, there have been several court proceedings in court concerning the murder but according to Solomon, the Ghana Police Service have failed to deal with the case as expected from them.
The fumed family member indicated that the alleged murderer has been made to cover up the people who contracted him to kill the MP stating that when he was due to mention names of his contractors, he was taken away by the BNI and he later changed his statement.
Speaking in a phone-in segment on Okay FM, Solomon clearly stated that they will take the matter into their own hands and deal with the murderer in their own way.
The Inside Story
Asiedu was facing three counts of murder, conspiracy to commit robbery and robbery, while Bosso had been charged with conspiracy to commit robbery.
The facts, as presented by the prosecution, are that on February 8, 2016, Asiedu and Bosso decided to embark on a robbery operation at Shiashie, a suburb of East Legon, where the MP resided.
Asiedu selected the MP’s house, but Bosso disagreed and decided to abandon the robbery operation.
About 11:40 p.m., the MP arrived home and went to bed in a room located on the first floor of his house.
About 1 a.m. that same night, Asiedu, armed with a catapult, a cutter and a sharp knife, went to the legislator’s house. He entered the house by scaling the wall on the blind side of a security man who was fast asleep.
On entering the house, Asiedu climbed onto a porch on the top floor with a ladder and entered the MP’s bedroom through a window.
While Asiedu was searching the room, the MP woke up and held him. There ensued a struggle, during which Asiedu stabbed the MP in the right chest above the breast. Asiedu also sustained various injuries in his palm and chest.
The legislator fell by his bed, bleeding profusely, after which Asiedu stabbed him several times on the right chest and neck.
On realizing that the MP was dying, Asiedu left the room and took with him three iPhones.
Meanwhile, the struggle between the MP and Asiedu drew the attention of the security man in the house who alerted others in the neighbourhood.
Asiedu, however, managed to descend; he jumped over the electric fencing on the walls of the house into an adjoining house and escaped.
Asiedu then took the phones to a phone repairer to decode them, but the repairer saw bloodstains and the pictures of the MP on the phones and alerted the police for his arrest.
