Dr Frimpong, the seventh prosecution witness, said he had also come across the name of former J.B.Danquah-Adu in respect of analysis of the Ghana Police Service, adding “I have never met him. I heard he was an MP, but he is now deceased”.

The prosecution witness said in February 2016, the Ghana Police Service brought him several exhibits for analysis, including a T-Shirt, bed sheet, a plastic cup, boxer shorts and swaps of blood.

DrFrimpongsaid “on receipt of the exhibits, I made sure I cross-checked the contents of every exhibit brought to me. I anonymised the samples and placed them under lock and key,” the witness said.

He said a third party was also asked to conduct analysis and that he had written and signed the final report for the Ghana Police Service and tendered the same in evidence.

Mr Yaw Dankwah, counsel for accused, did not object to the tendering of the forensic report. The case has been adjourned to March 23.-GNA
