The continuation of Daniel Asiedu’s testimony in the case involving the murder of Joseph Boakye (JB) Danquah Adu has been rescheduled for June 10, pending the return of the jurors.

Since May 16, 2024, all indictable cases, including those of murder and treason felony, have come to a standstill due to a jury strike prompted by unpaid allowances spanning over 10 months.

During the court session held on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, the jurors were conspicuously absent from Daniel Asiedu’s trial.

Asiedu, also known as Sexy Don Don, was slated to proceed with his oral evidence as part of his defense against the charges.

Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, while adjourning the case, expressed optimism that the jurors would reconvene by June 10, thereby facilitating the progression of the trial.

Present at the court session were Asiedu and his legal team, led by Lawyer Yaw Dankwah, while Mrs. Sefakor Batse, a Principal State Attorney, represented the republic.

Asiedu maintains his plea of not guilty to charges of murder and robbery as the trial carries on.

The prosecution has thus far presented eight witnesses.
