Daniel Asiedu, one of the suspects standing trial in the murder of former Abuakwa North MP, J.B. Danquah Adu, has confessed that he was contracted by some elements within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to kill the lawmaker.
The suspect also known as ‘Sexy Dondon’ told an Accra District Court on Wednesday that he will name his contractors.
He told the presiding judge, Arit Nsemoh, he was promised anything he would ask for before he executed the plot, but disclosed that after his arrest, he has not heard anything from his clients apart from only one of them who visited him once.
He also revealed that he was told to link his contractors to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
After the jaw-breaking revelation, the judge asked if he said that because of the promise or out of a threat, Asiedu said he made the confession because he is now a changed person and wants the truth to prevail.
J.B. Danquah Adu was killed at his Shiashie residence in February 2015.
The Attorney General will therefore take account of his confession at the District Court and add it to the bill of indictment for the court to consider whether the state has a prima facie case against Asiedu for him to be tried for murder, according to Graphiconline.com.
It is at the High Court that the jury will determine whether the suspect is guilty.
