The Bureau of National Investigations (BNI), has refuted allegations suggesting that it has concealed vital information by Daniel Asiedu, the lead suspect in the case involving the killing of former Abuakwa North MP, J.B Danquah-Adu.
The Daily Guide Newspaper captured in its Friday, May 20 edition that the BNI held back on vital information from the accused which implicates a Member of Parliament in the crime.
However, according to the paper Daniel Asiedu’s confessions shockingly changed when the police took over the case from the BNI.
But the Director of BNI, Pius Awelinga insists the newspaper publication is inaccurate, saying although the BNI was involved in the case, it was only keeping the suspect in custody for the police.
He told a group of journalists from the Community Development Programme of ECOWAS in Accra today [Friday].
Daniel Asiedu, and one other suspect, Vincent Bosso who was recently arrested and charged with abetment are both standing trial in the murder of the late MP.
The late Member of Parliament was stabbed multiple times to death at his East Legon residence in February.
Preliminary investigations suggested that the assailants got access to the late MP’s room with the aid of a ladder to carryout his heinous crime.
