Danquah’s death: 19yr old suspect charged with murder
19-year-old Daniel Asiedu who is being held for the murder of the Abuakwa North MP has been charged with murder.
The opposition lawmaker Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu was stabbed several times in his East-Legon residence in Accra a week ago.
According to a police charge sheet, the suspect single-handedly climbed to the room of the deceased through a window with a ladder and committed the murder.
“…The suspect picked a ladder in the house and climbed to the porch of the top floor and entered the bedroom through the window while the deceased was sleeping. The suspect begun to search the room but deceased woke up and held him.
“He stabbed the deceased on the right above the breast. Deceased held the knife and shouted for help but no one came. The suspect pulled the knife through the deceased hand creating a deep cut in his palm. The deceased who was bleeding profusely fell on the floor by his bed helpless and the suspect stabbed him again in his right chest below the breast,” portions of the charge sheet read.
An Accra Magistrate court presided over by his Lordship Steven Owusu remanded him into police custody after reading him the charge Tuesday.
Meanwhile, the Police have said no politician has been mentioned in connection with the crime.
