JB murder case adjourned to May 19

Prosecutors handling the case involving the murder of former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North J. B Danquah-Adu are awaiting the Attorney General’s advice for their next line of action.

Police Superintendent Francis Baah told an Accra District Court on Wednesday May 4 that the docket on the prime suspect, Daniel Asiedu, had been sent to the Attorney General’s office for advice following the completion of investigations.

The magistrate, Mr Stephen Owusu, assured the public that the case would not be delayed adding that due process would be followed.

Following the AG’s advice, the court will determine whether Asiedu will stand trial at the High Court.

Meanwhile the accused has expressed satisfaction after his transfer from the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) cells to police custody.

He told the court: “I am allowed to stretch and interact with others as compared to the BNI custody where I was kept in solitary confinement”. The case has been adjourned to 19 May 2016.
