The pathologist who performed the postmortem on murdered MP for Abuakwa North Constituency JB Danquah-Adu has told the Accra High Court that the medical routine report was stolen.
On Monday, January 31, Dr. Lawrence Adusei informed the court that robbers broke into his home and stole some of his items, including the computer on which the postmortem report was kept.
Dr. Adusei, the fifth witness in the case, was being cross-examined on how the postmortem was carried out in 2016, the same year as the horrible event, yet his report was dated February 2018.
He did, however, say that he carried out the procedure with the help of an autopsy assistant, a team from the Ghana Police Service’s Criminal Investigations Department, and others.
When asked how he did the postmortem by the accused’s counsel, Yaw Dankwah, Dr Adusei said he does a lot of them in a day and couldn’t recollect how the body of the late New Patriotic Party (NPP) MP was examined.
However, he confirmed that JB Danquah-Adu died as a result of many stab wounds to his neck and chest, which caused him to lose a lot of blood.
Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, the presiding court, adjourned the case until today, February 1, 2022, for further proceedings.
JB Danquah-Adu was brutally killed at his Shiashie house on February 9, 2016.
