Kwaku Solomon, a family member of the late Abuakwa North MP, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu has described as shocking dismissal of judgment of his uncle’s killers in court.

According to Mr Solomon, he together with other family members hardly listen to the news since the culprits had already confessed their involvement in the crime when they were arrested.

“He confessed the matter himself. If there is no evidence the statement is enough to hold him on. So hearing he has been released really affected the family.

“In fact, upon hearing that those criminals have been set free I nearly peed myself. At once I felt a sharp pain in my heart. I lost control of my urinal bladder. I was duly shocked…” Mr Solomon said on Accra based Okay FM.

The Abuakwa North legislator was on Tuesday, February 9, 2016, stabbed to death at his Shiashie residence in Accra.

Two days after his murder, the then Accra Regional Police Command, led by COP George A. Dampare, arrested a prime suspect, Daniel Asiedu, who allegedly confessed to committing the crime.

Vincent Bosso was later arrested as having conspired with Asiedu to commit the crime.

However, earlier this week, the State Attorney Sefakor Batsa cited Section 54 of the Criminal and Other Offences Act, 1960 (Act 30), as the basis for the Attorney General’s decision to file a nolle prosequi to discontinue with the prosecution.

The two suspects arrested in connection with the murder of the former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, are still in prison custody almost 24 hours after charges against them were dropped at an Accra High Court.

But according to Mr Solomon, the beloved family members’ hearts were toned down when they realized the suspects were only discharged to be re-arrested but not acquitted to go home.

“It was until they were re-arrested that calmed our pulse. We sent a petition to Nana Addo to investigate the matter. His wife, driver, staff and security man should be called for investigation. We sent the petition already. It might help to emerge new matters to solve the murder…”

“I will urge sympathizers to calm down. The murder case will be solved. They were not acquitted but rather discharged and re-arrested…” he maintained.

Meanwhile, the family members further urged the Attorney General to treat the case with enormous priority to serve justice on the life of the late legislator.

“We pray Gloria Akufo solves the issue amicably and faster. We don’t want it to delay so the newly gathered evidence will sway off…” they stressed.
