The Criminal Investigations Department (CID) has invited Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Ohene Agyapong to respond to allegations that he contracted people to ‘kill’ the late MP for Abuakwa North, JB Danquah-Adu.
The MP said on Adom TV on Tuesday as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com that he was invited by the CID Boss, Maame Tiwaah to give his statement on the case.
He however did not name the day and date he appeared at the CID headquarters.
“I was invited to CID because the guy has claimed I was the one who contracted him to kill JB and that I said Akufo-Addo asked me to contract him to kill JB. This is not something to joke with, the CID spoke to me, Maame Tiwaah invited me that the guy has mentions my name so I am not going to take it kindly with anybody…,” he said.
The then NDC government was accused by a section of the public for the murder of the legislator in 2016, but on Wednesday June 20, 2018, Daniel Asiedu, one of the suspects standing trial for the murder of the late J.B. Danquah Adu, ‘confessed’ that he was contracted by some persons within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to kill the lawmaker.
He told the presiding judge, Arit Nsemoh, he would name his contractor and disclosed he was not given what he was promised before executing the plot.
Asiedu also said he has not heard anything from his clients apart from only one of them who visited him once after his arrest.
Speaking on the matter, Ken Agyapong said the alleged killer of the MP has now been coached to implicate him in the murder of the MP.
He assured that he is prepared to do anything possible to prove his innocence.
