Lawyer Yaw Obuor, counsel for Daniel Asiedu one of the suspects standing trial in the murder of the former MP for Abuakwa North Constituency, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu, has said the suspect is a minor and is mentally unstable.

Daniel Asiedu aka Sexy Dondon, on Wednesday, told an Accra District Court that he was hired by some persons in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to kill the Legislator and was rather told to mention the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as his ‘contractors’ whenever he’s questioned about the crime.

According to him, he was promised to be provided with whatever he asks for after he’s been able to carry out the assignment. He added that he’s still not heard from his “contractors”.

Daniel Asiedu who was arrested after he stabbed the late MP in his East Legon home while sleeping on the dawn of Tuesday, February 9, 2016, told the court that only one person from the NPP has visited him since his arrest and is ready to mention the names of the persons who contracted him if he is asked to.

But the Deputy General Secretary of the NPP, Lawyer Nana Obiri Boahen who has followed the case in court in an interview with host Akwasi Nsiah on Si Mi So on Kasapa FM described Daniel Asiedu as a dishonest character whose words should not be taken seriously.

He said the suspect has not been consistent with his statements about his involvement in the murder making his not a credible character.

“We need to be serious and not waste our time on such baseless allegations, he should mention the name of the persons he claims contracted him to commit the murder. This guy has not been consistent. Initially, when he was caught he told the police that he knew nothing about the crime, later he said it was the NDC who contracted him and now he’s saying it’s the NPP. Can you take such a person seriously?

But Daniel Asiedu’s Counsel, Lawyer Obuor insists his client is not in the right state of mind.

“I can tell you and I’ve said it that he has a mental problem, I applied for bail for him last week but the bail was refused. He’s aware that we were going to apply for bail for him again, it will be filed early next week.” He told Joy FM.

Meanwhile, Criminal Lawyer, Martin Kpebu has said the suspect's confession is not enough and expects the case to move to the High Court where the suspect will face the death penalty if convicted.
