“The docket was transferred to the headquarters of the criminal investigation department in Accra.
“Asamoha Gyan fully cooperated with the police during the investigation and the investigation has come to an end”
The lawyer of the former Sunderland striker revealed that Criminal Investigation Department, Accra have revealed that after a careful study of the docket, the Attorney General has concluded that the rape and unnatural canal allegations made by Kwablah against Gyan are totally baseless and that the docket should be closed.
