Ghana Police nab teenagers allegedly involved in murder of 10-year-old boy for money rituals


Police have arrested two teenagers, aged 17 and 16, who allegedly murdered a 10-year-old boy for money rituals around Lamptey Mills, inside Kasoa in Ghana.

Deputy Central Regional Police Public Relations officer, Evans Enttie told BBC Pidgin that the suspects used club and cement blocks on the little boy.

The suspects, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini, tricked the kid into some uncompleted building where the latter was killed.

Reports have it that, after they moved the 10-year-old victim, identified as Ishmael Mensah, into an uncompleted building, they allegedly killed him for money rituals.

“We find (sic) the young boy inside pool of blood. The suspects lay the deceased in the uncompleted building after hitting him with a club and cement block,” a source revealed.

The incident happened at Kasoa last weekend around 5:pm.

Kasoa Divisional Police Command has not commented officially on the incident as at press time.

But videos doing the rounds on social media showed police packing up the dead body inside a truck alongside the two suspects who were handcuffed.

However, Ghana Police Service has posted a message on social media advising children against dealing with strangers.
