JB Killer Nearly Stabbed A Prison Officer
The first accused person in the murder of former Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, Joseph Boakye Danquah- Adu, Daniel Aseidu nearly stabbed an Officer of the Prisons service after he was caught using a phone which was seized by the officer after his colleague inmate reported to the officer in charge.
Addressing the court, after raising his hands for some time, Daniel Asiedu who has bruises over his body, told the High Court criminal division presided over by Justice George Buadi that “mine life is in danger and the people we planned and killed JB want to kill me now”.
The trial judge who became worried asked the prison officers what actually happened, which they explained, ‘that Daniel Aseidu popularly called Sexy Dondon is very troublesome and always fight, but in this latest issue he brought a phone which he knew he was not supposed to have and when he was reported to the ASP on duty who took the phone from his colleague’, he said.
“Daniel got offended and took a weapon and nearly stabbed the officer who jumped and run for his life”.
He said when Daniel was asked why he did that, he said, “I would have killed you like the way l did the man”
But the prosecution team led by Sefakor Batsa, a Senior State Attorney told the court to kindly advise the accused as he is the only one always complaining and the prison officers also having issues all the time.
Lawyer for the accused persons, Augustines Obour prayed the court with a passion to grant bail to his clients as he fears for their lives as the state has proved that they cannot protect them especially the first accused and could kill him and come to the court and say it is malaria.
Obour said, l don’t know why all judges are running away from this case for three years now and it seems no judge wants to grant them bail despite all cases are bailable.
The trial judge warned the prison officers to make sure this incident does not happen again and make sure they present the accused persons in a good condition.
The court adjourned the case to 23rd January for continuation.
