Abuakwa North Member of Parliament, Joseph Boakye Danquah Adu, has been stabbed to death at his residence at Shiashie in Accra. 

It is not clear whether the New Patriotic Party (NPP) legislator was killed by armed robbers or a hitman but police have begun investigation in earnest.

The police are currently at his residence to begin their investigations. The Greater Accra Regional Police Commander is also at the residence, together with some MPs.

Police have been collecting evidence and examining the MP's body.

Joy News' Derrick Ekwow Sam who was at his residence reports that family members have been grief-striken by the murder of the MP.

The Abuakwa North MP is the grandson of late J.B Danquah, a Ghanaian statesman, pan-Africanist, scholar and historian, who played a significant role in pre- and post-colonial Ghana.

He was a chartered accountant by profession and hailed from Old Tafo, in the Eastern Region.

He had his first stint in Parliament on the ticket of NPP in January 2005, but until then, he was the Executive Director at Automotive Springs Ghana Limited, Accra. 

JB Dankwa Adu was born on July 2, 1965 and was married with two children.

In 2010, he was deputy Minister for Women and Children’s Affairs under the erstwhile Kufuor administration, and won Abuakwa North seat in the Eastern Region in the December 2012 elections after defeating the National Democratic Congress’ Victor Smith.

He was a 19-member Special Budget Committee chaired by the Majority Leader.

The Committee considers the budget of Parliament and other constitutionally independent bodies, including, Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), National Media Commission (NMC), the Electoral Commission (EC), and National Commission on Civic Education (NCCE)
