Family of the 11-year-old boy who was allegedly murdered at Kasoa for money rituals is demanding justice

According to the family, although they respect the laws of the country, they believe the culprits should be given punishment enough to serve as deterrent to others irrespective of their age.

He also confirmed that the boys confessed to the police of killing the boy, and that they should be punished accordingly.

Two teenagers were arrested by the police in Kasoa in the Central Region for their alleged involvement in a murder said to be related to money rituals.

The teenage boys, 16 and 18 years respectively, lured their victim, a 10-year-old boy Ishmael Mensah, into an uncompleted building and killed him..

The incident happened at the Kasoa, suburb of Lamptey Mills on Saturday, April 3, 2021 between 5 and 6pm according to sources.

In an interview with Ekourba Gyasi Simpremu on Atinka TV’s morning show, Ghana Nie, spokesperson for the Family, Sammed Akalilu said the teenagers and all their collaborators should be made to face the full rigors of the law.

“Ghana is not a Banana Republic, we are aware Ghana is governed by the Rule of Law, and there are laws that indicate how to punish whoever commits murder. We are expecting that these boys are given harsh punishment so that even as they live, they will learn something from what they have done,” he said.

“At the time they were arrested, they were not able to mention anybody’s name as their collaborators but we trust the Ghana Police to do their job, and arrest whoever is involved. What we know is that other persons were involved and whether the person is a male or female, we leave that to the police,” he added.

Meanwhile, it has been reported that the wife of the priest who asked the suspects to bring human parts has been arrested and currently at the CID Head Quarters in Accra for investigations.
