YAW Anokye Frimpong, one of the six suspects arrested in connection with the murder of the two African-Americans at Fihan-kra, Akwamufie in the Eastern region, is to be charged with murder.
This follows advice from the Attorney-General’s Department after studying a docket forwarded by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID)
The Director-General of the Criminal Investigations Department (CID), Commissioner of Police (COP) Prosper Kwame Agblor, who announced this at a news briefing in Accra yesterday, said the other suspects would be discharged.
He said Mamalina Diop and Nzinga Jaana on May 4 this year, were attacked at their residence at about 10 pm by an unidentified assailant and their bodies buried in a shallow grave dug by the assailant within the community.
COP Agblor said in the early hours of May 5, when the two women were not seen some of their neighbours engaged the services of a carpenter who broke down the doors of their apartment.
He said a blood stained club was found lying on the floor of Nzinga Jaana’s room as well as a rubber bag covered with blood stains and hidden in a dustbin.
DCOP Agblor said a report about their disappearance was made to the police and a search conducted led to the discovery of the bodies of the two women buried in a shallow grave near a farm within the community.
Investigations, he said, led to the arrest of six suspects including Frimpong.
