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.
