The AG explained that after studying the case docket, it was realized that there was the need to do further investigations.

The two men standing trial in connection with the murder of a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North, Mr J.B. Danquah-Adu have been re-arrested after they were discharged.

The Attorney General (AG) filed a nolle prosequi discontinuing trial of the two suspected murderers of J.B Danquah.

The AG represented by a state attorney Sefakor Batse on Tuesday moved the application at the high court.

The AG explained that after studying the case docket, it was realized that there was the need to do further investigations.

Technically, investigators cannot conduct further investigations and interrogate the accused persons whilst the trial was underway, hence the filling of the nolle prosequi.

The two suspects Daniel Asiedu aka sexy dondon and Vincent Bosso aka Junior Agogo were therefore discharged by the court.

The two were picked up in March 2016 after the murder of the late MP in his residence at Shiashie in Accra.

Background

Daniel Asiedu was arrested few days after the murder of JB Danquah who was the member of parliament for the Abuakwa North constituency in his residence at Shiashie in Accra.

He was charged with murder when arraigned after his arrest and allegedly confessed to stabbing the late MP in his residence which led to his death.

Despite his confessions, another suspect was arrested later as an accomplice.

But the teenager said he entered the MP’s house to steal but not to kill.

According to him, he had to stab the MP who held him tight during a struggle.

Meanwhile, the family of the late J.B Danquah-Adu has petitioned President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to launch fresh investigations into the circumstances leading to his death. credit:pulsegh
