Teenagers who allegedly killed 10-year-old for rituals remanded into custody

The two prime suspects in the alleged murder of a 10-year old boy have been remanded into police custody by the Awutu Ofankor District Court.

The suspects, Felix Nyarko, 19, and Nicholas Kiki, 18, are alleged to have gruesomely murdered Ishmael Mensah with the intention of using his body parts for rituals.

According to one of the suspects, the spiritualist, whom they had discovered through national television agreed to help them become instant billionaires by demanding a human being and a sum of GH¢5,000.

On April 3, the suspects were apprehended after residents of Kasoa Lamptey notified the Police of the sad incident surrounding the death of Ishmael.

According to the residents, the two admitted that they killed Ishmael Mensah by hitting a club against his neck.

This was after luring him into an uncompleted building under the guise of selling him a video game at Lamptey, a suburb of Kasoa in the Central Region.

On Tuesday, the case was heard at the Awutu Ofaakor District Court where the judge, Rosemond Vera Ocloo, remanded them into police custody.

The two are scheduled to reappear before the court on April 20, 2021.

The remains of Ishmael Mensah have been deposited at the Police Hospital Mortuary for autopsy while the Kasoa Divisional Police Command continues to investigate the matter.
