JB Killers Charged
After over a year of legal battle, the Attorney-General (A-G) and Minister for Justice, has finally charged the two young men standing trial over the murder of Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North in the Eastern Region.
According to the prosecutor, Superintendent Francis Baah, the AG has advised that Vincent Bosso aka Junior Agogo be charged with abetment of crime to wit robbery.
Earlier, Agogo was charged with abetment of crime which was later changed to conspiracy to murder.
Sexy Don Don's earlier charge of murder has been maintained.
At the hearing yesterday, Supt Baah told the court, presided over by Magistrate Ebenezer Kweku Ansah, that the Bill of Indictment would be completed and served on Augustines Obuor, the defence lawyer.
The Senior Police Prosecutor said that the document would be served on Obour for the committal processes to start at the next hearing.
The trial magistrate, who adjourned the case to March 2, 2017, stated that the court was adjourning the case for the prosecution to begin the indictment of the two and “nothing else.”
Bosso is in the dock with Daniel Asiedu, 19, aka Sexy Don Don.
The two are standing trial over the death of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Member of Parliament (MP) for Abuakwa North in the Eastern Region, fondly called JB.
In the case of Agogo, the prosecution held that Vincent at about 1 am on February 9, this year at Shaishie, East Legon in Accra, abetted Sexy Don Don to commit murder.
Sexy Don Don, according to the prosecution, on the same day and time intentionally and unlawfully caused the death of the MP.
Agoogo reportedly assisted Sexy Don Don to enter the house of the deceased through the iron fence wall at the blind side of the security man, who was fast asleep.
