Alleged JB Danquah murderer re-enacts bloody incident


The suspected assailant arrested in connection with the murder of the Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North has re-enacted how he allegedly accessed the house of the MP and attacked him.

The MP, Mr Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu was attacked by unidentified assailants at his residence at Shiashie, in Accra, in the wee hours of Tuesday, February 16, 2016.

A police source told the Daily Graphic that a team of investigators, including National Security and Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) operatives took the suspect to the residence of the MP as part of investigations into the alleged murder and asked him to re-enact the incident.

The details of the procedures were however, not disclosed.

Preliminary investigations

Preliminary investigations have established that the suspected killer scaled over a wall, entered the residence of the MP and with the help of a ladder entered the MP’s room.

There were bloodstains on the walls and footprints, which were believed to be those of the attackers, at the backyard of the house.

The suspect

The Accra Regional Police Command, led by the Accra Regional Police Commander, Commissioner of Police (COP) Dr George Akuffo Dampare, arrested the suspect, who is believed to have killed the MP, after a tip-off last Thursday. This was a day after the Police Administration had put a GH¢10,000 bounty on the killer’s head.

The suspect, whose identity has not been revealed, was arrested in a special operation. He has allegedly confessed to stabbing the MP.

Three mobile phones, two of which were believed to belong to the late MP, were retrieved from the suspect.

The suspect was later handed over to the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), whose officials worked with personnel of the Accra Regional Police to effect the arrest.

Other suspects

Six persons were invited by the police for questioning soon after the MP was pronounced dead at the Police Hospital in Accra.

Five out of the six persons were said to have been released last Wednesday while the sixth person, who was held by the police for further interrogation was later granted bail.
