Asiedu Nketia raises issues regarding unsolved murders of NPP MPs

By Majesty 3 Min Read

Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed worry over the lack of advancement in the investigation into the killings of some New Patriotic Party (NPP) members of parliament.

Mr. Nketia emphasized the worrying tendency of violence in Ghanaian politics when speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express, saying, “The country is degenerating into a situation where people can kill for power and get away with it.”

The vocal politician said that three of the aforementioned MPs J.B. Danquah Adu, Ekow Quansah Hayford, and John Kumah, were all killed inexplicably.

“J.B. Danquah Adu, the Abuakwa North MP, was fatally murdered in his bedroom. Then, on a roadway, Ekow Quansah Hayford, the MP for Mfantseman, was shot. All that was said about his situation was that his wife ought to step in. And John Kumah, the MP for Ejisu as of right now. Someone claimed on a TV station that he was poisoned after he passed away. This guy boasted that he could attest to all of the claims he was making, and he listed the location of the hotel where he had eaten the meal and the name of the server.

“This guy is moving around, nothing has happened, no hotel manager has been arrested, and NPP is treating this like they’re just filling a position and nothing more,” he stated on Wednesday.

Mr. Nketia criticised the authorities for their failure to capture the offenders, expressing dissatisfaction over the lack of finality in these cases.

In addition to demanding transparency in the inquiry process, he called on the police to act immediately.

The chairman of the National Democratic Party (NDC) urged the police to address the country and give updates on the status of their inquiries into these fatalities. The government should put elected officials’ safety first and make sure that such horrible acts are not left unpunished, he pleaded.

“This is a serious problem, and the police ought to be informing the country about the actions they are doing. As of now, we have not heard anything. Regarding their search for the Mfantseman MP’s killers, we have not heard anything. 

In the case of J.B. Danquah Adu, the state retracted their filing, causing a public uproar. They pretended to be looking into the matter and at one point claimed that the doctor who performed the post-mortem had taken the laptop—such nonsense and bullshit. We’ve heard nothing save that the widows of the roughly three MPs who were assassinated have been rehabilitated into the parliament to take their husbands’ places. Does our democracy seem to be heading there? He asked a question.
