Parliament suspends sitting after JB Danquah murder

Parliament on Tuesday suspended sitting after the Member of Parliament for Abuakwa North, Joseph Boakye Danquah, was killed in his house.

The Minority Leader, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, moved a motion for the suspension of sitting before noon, expressing his condolences to the bereaved family.

“I believe the entire House is not in a good mood to do business today,” he said.

‘The long and short of it is that J.B. Danquah who only last week Thursday paid a glowing tribute to the memory of Dr. J.B. Danquah has had his life cut short by somebody,’ he added.

The Speaker of Parliament, Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, also expressed the hope that police would do thorough investigations and arrest the perpetrator (s) of the crime soon.

Mr Danquah was stabbed by an unknown assailant (s) at his Shiashie residence in Accra, prompting the police to launch an investigation.

It is suspected that the assailant used a ladder to climb to a roof linking to a terrace and then entered the MP’s bedroom through a window and stabbed him.
