Kwasi Frimpong, the Abusuapanyin of the family of the late Joseph Boakye Danquah-Adu, who was Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, has revealed that he feels disgusted whenever the suspected killer of the deceased lawmaker demands preferential treatment from the state.
Earlier this year, Daniel Aseidu, aka Sexy Dondon, one of the suspects in the murder case, told the court presided over by Mr Stephen Owusu: “The Police Service has stopped giving me food and I depend on leftovers.”
“Since December 30 last year till date, the police have not been giving me food and they have also asked my family members not to bring me food in the cells. My Lord, I feed on leftovers and when I collect them I pray over it and eat, I don’t know why the police have stopped giving me food. Now, if the police give me food again, I will not eat it,” he said.
However, speaking to Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom, on Accra100.5FM as part of the one year anniversary of the late MP on Thursday February 9, 2017, Mr Frimpong said: “We get livid when someone who has [allegedly] killed a human being and has been arrested says he has missed his wife, and that he doesn’t like some foods given to him. He likes that, he like this. We get angry with that posture.
“For us the family, we can’t do anything about it but we know that the president, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, will ensure that justice is done.”
Meanwhile, a church service was organised at the Ridge Church in Accra in remembrance of the late MP.
Accra News’ Nana Amoako Gyampah, who was at the memorial service being held at Ridge Church, Accra, for the slain MP, reported that several dignitaries including President Akufo-Addo, Speaker of Parliament Professor Mike Oquaye, Members of Parliament, and several other dignitaries attended to observe the memorial.
