JB murder: I lost my marriage because of my son – Teary mother of acquitted Vincent Bossu

Madam Juliet, the mother of Vincent Bossu, the second accused person who was acquitted and discharged in the murder of Abuakwa North Member of Parliament, JB Danquah Adu, said she lost her marriage because of her accused son.

While in tears moments after her son was freed for conspiracy to rob by the High Court in Accra, she said she believed in her son’s innocence all along.

Madam Juliet who spoke to EIB Network Legal Affairs Correspondent, Murtala Inusah, after the court sitting, thanked God for the answered prayers.

On Tuesday, March 19, State Prosecutors led by Mrs Sefakor Batse closed their case after calling eight witnesses with ASP Augustus Nkrumah, the investigator being their last witness.

The High Court then ruled in a submission of no case that, prima facie evidence had been established by the prosecution with an order for Daniel Asiedu alias Sexy Don Don to open his defense to the charge of murder of Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu and robbery.

Asiedu has pleaded not guilty to murder and robbery and is standing trial while being held in lawful custody.

In court on Tuesday, March 19, 2014, following the closure of the Prosecution’s case, Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, the trial judge held that the Prosecution also failed to establish a prima facie case against Bossu.

Bossu and Asiedu have been on remand for the past eight years.

EIB Network Legal Affairs Correspondent, Murtala Inusah, who was in court reports that moments after Bossu was acquitted and discharged he broke down in tears in the docket.
