A confession by the suspected murderer of Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, J.B. Danquah that he was contracted by some members of the New Patriotic Party to commit the act is nonsense, editor-in-chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper has said.

Malik Kweku Baako Jnr says similar occurrences in the past make it difficult for any reasonable person to acknowledge such confessions, especially when the suspect on trial is yet to appear in the dock.

“But for the fact that this was said in court, I would have ignored it with contempt. It appears to me to be total rubbish but because it was said in court, I am not going to run away from it,” he said on Joy FM’s news analysis programme, Newsfile.

Daniel Asiedu who is standing trial with another suspect for the murder gave a voluntary confession to the court early this week that he was contracted by some persons within the NPP to murder the Abuakwa North MP.
