Ishmael Mensah, the 10-year-old boy who was murdered for ritual purposes by two teenagers will be buried today.

The burial of the boy who is a Muslim has been delayed due to investigations by the Police who indicated they had not concluded and could not hand the body over to the family until all the necessary investigations are done.

Angel FM’s Odehyie Kwaku Asiedu reported on Anopa Bofo on Thursday that the Police had said they would present the body to the family today for burial.

The Muslim family had planned a burial service for the deceased on April 6, 2021, but that did not come off.

Meanwhile, the two teenage killers of the 10-year old boy at Kasoa appeared before the court Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

The two Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kini, 18 were charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder at the Ofankor District Court.

The court was presided over by Her Worship, Mrs Rosemond Vera Ocloo.

In the charge sheet filed at the court, it was alleged that the two accused persons have for some time been watching television programmes with spiritualist talking about their ability to make people wealthy and the two contacted a spiritualist in the Volta Region who asked for an amount of GHS 5,000 and human body parts for the rituals.

The boys then armed themselves and they say their initial plan was to kidnap the deceased and ask for a ransom of GHC 5,000 but when they saw that would be difficult they decided to kill him after luring him to an uncompleted building.

They hit him with cement blocks killing him instantly with the intention of and carrying his body to the ritualist but the sister of one of the suspects saw the act and told his father who went to the scene and saw the body of the boy.

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