Teenagers arrested in Kasoa over murder of ten-year-old boy

Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kenni, 17, allegedly killed the ten-year-old boy by hitting him with building blocks to use his parts for rituals

Two teenagers have been arrested at Kasoa in the Central Region over suspected ritual murder, the police have said.

The two suspects Felix Nyarko,16, and Nicholas Kenni,17, are alleged to have killed a ten-year-old boy, Ismael Mensah, in a suspected case of ritual murder.

The police said their investigations reveal the two were allegedly acting on the orders of a fetish priest who demanded human parts to perform a money-making ritual for them.


According to the police, the duo confessed to killing Mensah on Saturday 3 April in the Coca-Cola suburb of Kasoa, near the Great Lamptey Mills School.

The crime allegedly took place in an uncompleted building. The police said the suspects hit the victim with clubs and building blocks several times, killing him in the process.

According to the police, they proceeded to bury the boy in the uncompleted building, hoping to return in the evening for the body, but neighbours who chanced on the crime raised the alarm, leading to their arrest.

The body has since been exhumed and deposited at the Police Hospital in Accra for autopsy.
