Mahama reponds to Ken Agyapong over JB Daquah’s death

The office of ex-President John Mahama has dismissed some purported comments made by controversial Assin Central MP, Kennedy Agyapong on his Net 2 TV network linking the former Commander-In-Chief to the death of JB Danquah Adu.

The former Abuakwa North MP was murdered at his Shiashi residence in Accra in 2016.

Aide to the former President wrote in a statement Saturday that “there is no iota of truth in the allegations [by Mr. Agyapong], they are complete fabrications and figment of fevered imaginations.”

“This is the same person who over the years has made similar scurrilous allegations against other persons he has accused with the same offence. Where did this new information he claims to have, come from,” it added.

Meanwhile, nobody has been convicted in the murder case three years on despite a suspect in the case confessing to the killing, raising more speculations about the matter.

The office of Mahama has, however, asked Mr. Agyapong and the governing NPP “concentrate their energies on dealing with these problems and stop trying to divert attention.”

“Mahama remains focused on advocating an alternative and sincere working government and would urge the good people of Ghana to treat the vituperations of Mr. Agyapong with utmost contempt,” the statement said.
