According to the Daily Graphic, the Director General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service, Commissioner of Police Mr Prosper K. Agblor, said Anokye was charged based on the advice of the Attorney- General’s (A-G’s) Department.

After the CID had completed its investigations, he said, a duplicate docket on the case was forwarded to the A-G’s Department on August 12, 2015.

After three months of studying the facts, Mr Agblor said, the A-G, on November 18, 2015, advised the CID to charge Frimpong with murder, since there was sufficient evidence to do so.

The charge statement, Mr Agblor explained, was to enable the A-G to prepare a bill of indictment and summary of evidence for Frimpong to stand trial at the High Court.
