JB’s Murderer Confession Rubbish – Baako
‘Total rubbish’―this is how Malik Kweku Baako, Editor-In-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper, has branded a recent confession made by the suspected murderer of Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, J.B. Danquah.
The accused person, Daniel Asiedu, is reported to have told an Accra District Court, that he was hired by some persons in the NPP to kill the former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North Constituency.
But Mr Baako speaking on Accra based Joy FM, last Saturday said he does not believe the accused and that his confession must be interrogated to the core before it leaves an irreversible effect.
“For the fact that this was said in court, I would have ignored it with contempt. It appears to me to be total rubbish. Because it was said in court, I’m going to run away from it. I want it to be handled in a more serious manner, to be interrogated so that we can arrive at the truth relative to the so-called confession,” he said.
According to Mr Baako similar incidences in the past makes the accused person’s confession difficult for any discerning individuals to acknowledge.
In an earlier confession, the accused person nicknamed Sexy Dondon had said his contractors had told him to accuse certain persons within the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of hiring him.
Daniel Asiedu had further added that a promise by his partners to get him freed when the NPP comes to power has not been met hence his decision to expose the alleged perpetrators.
All these inconsistencies, according to the veteran journalist makes the entire story amusing adding that the accused may be receiving some training in prison that aims at spinning the truth which could later pin the alleged crime on innocent people.
Daniel Aseidu is reported to have murdered Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu at his residence on February 8, 2016. He was stabbed in the right chest whiles struggling with the accused person in his room.
On realizing the MP was dying, Asiedu reportedly left the room, taking with him three iPhones belong to the victim.
The phones were later tracked by the police, leading to his arrest.
