Description of Sexy Dondon as ‘terrible guy’ is not my opinion – Investigator

Assistant Superinten­dent of Police (ASP) Augustus Nkrumah, an investigator, told the Accra High Court that his description of Dan­iel Asiedu as a “terrible guy” is not his opinion.

The investigator said per the statements given by Daniel Asiedu and Vincent Bossu, both accused of the murder of former Abuak­wa North Member of Parliament MP), the late J.B Danquah Adu, stated clearly that they were “thieves and they were going on a stealing expedition.”

According to ASP Nkrumah, the accused graduated from thieves to armed robbers because of the offensive implements they possessed.

“For an armed robber to have those offensive weapons indicated that he was capable of resisting anything in the commission of the crime. So when the first accused (Asiedu) had the chance of enter­ing the deceased room, he was to make sure that whatever prevented him from robbing was eliminat­ed,” ASP Nkrumah told the court presided over by Mrs Justice Lydia Osei Marfo.

The investigator said this while answering questions under cross examination administered by Mr Yaw Dankwa, defence counsel for the two accused, at the High Court.

ASP Nkrumah maintained that it was Asiedu who murdered the late MP, adding that investigations and the admission of the accused (Asiedu) in the commission of the crime and retrieval of offensive weapons and belongings, pointed to the fact it was Asiedu who killed the late MP.

The investigator, the eighth prosecution witness, said when the deceased put up resistance, “what first accused person (Asiedu) could do is to stab him (the late MP) in the neck and chest about six times for the deceased to give up the ghost.”

ASP Nkrumah told the court that it was incorrect for defence counsel to suggest to him that he formed an opinion that Asiedu murdered the MP from Novem­ber 23, 2016, without conducting investigations.

The investigator said investiga­tions established that it was Asiedu who murdered the MP.

ASP Nkrumah admitted that he (Asiedu) personally wrote his own statement.

The investigator denied that he was selective in his investi­gations, and told the court that 11 statements, including caution statements, were taken from the accused.

Asiedu, also known as Sexy Dondon, is being held for his alleged involvement in the murder of J.B Danquah Adu, at his resi­dence in 2016, at Shaishie, Accra.

Asiedu is being held for murder and robbery, and his accomplice, Bossu, is being held for allegedly conspiring with Asiedu to rob.

They have pleaded not guilty before a seven-member jury and the court has remanded them in prison custody. —GNA
