Speaking on to the media  on Wednesday, July 26, 2023,  Alfred Tuah-Yeboah said they had everything to make a pronouncement on the matter. 

“I can assure you that we are working honestly and within the shortest possible time, we will come out with an opinion on the matter so that the police can carry on with what they are supposed to do and fortunately, we have the original docket, and we have all the statements taken from the people that were interrogated on the matter, and so we will examine everything and come out with a statement on it.”
