Kasoa Ritual K!lling: Spiritualist Asked For Ghc5,000 And A Human Being – Court Facts

The Ofaakor District Magistrate Court on Tuesday remanded into police custody the two teenagers who allegedly killed a 10-year-old boy last Saturday at Coca-Cola, near Lamptey Mills in Kasoa.

This is to allow the police to conduct more investigations into the matter.

They are to reappear on April 20, 2021, reports Graphic Online’s Emmanuel Bonney who was at the court Tuesday morning (April 6, 2021).

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

Felix Nyarko, 15, and Nicholas Kini, 17, are alleged to have conspired to kill the Class Four pupil of the Maranatha School, Ishmael Mensah last Saturday.

Presenting the facts of the case, Chief Inspector Agbo said the two teenagers, who lived at Lamptey, had been friends since 2008.

He said for some time now Felix had been watching Ghana Television channels which entertained Mallams and other spiritualists to promote their prowess in making people instant millionaires.

Felix, according to the prosecutor, made his intention known to Nicholas, who advised that there was a certain spiritualist in the Volta Region who could do it for them.

The second accused, who does not own a phone, provided the phone number of the said spiritualist to the first accused, who has access to his mother’s phone.

After contacting the said spiritualist, he agreed to help if only they could provide a human being and GHC5,000 for the rituals,” he said.

Chief Inspector Agbo explained that on Saturday, April 3, 2021, the accused persons settled on Ishmael, 10 years, 11 months, the son of the complainant, Mr Frank Mensah Abdallah, adding that the second accused then went to hide in an uncompleted building near the first accused person’s house where they planned to carry out their operation.

The accused persons armed themselves with a club, a piece of cement block and shovel as their weapons, and the first accused, who is close to Ishmael, lured him to the uncompleted building with convincing words that his friend was selling a video game.

Nicholas, the prosecutor further said, then picked the club and hit Ishmael hard on the back of the neck, while Felix “used the cement block to hit his head, killing him instantly.”

In the course of the act, he said, Felix’s younger sister, eight, sensed that something was going on and so she walked towards the direction of the uncompleted building but was driven away by her elder brother.

He said after murdering Ishmael, the accused persons dug a shallow grave, buried the deceased and left the scene, so that they would return in the night to convey the body to the Volta Region for the rituals.

But luck eluded them when Felix’s sister went to inform her father, Mr Nyarko, who is Felix’s stepfather, that something had gone amiss in the uncompleted building.

Mr Nyarko went to the scene and saw that the place had been disturbed, and when he decided to remove the surface sand, he found the body of the deceased covered with sand,” he said, adding that Mr Nyarko quickly confronted the first accused, who confessed and mentioned the second accused as his accomplice.

Chief Inspector Agbo said the accused persons were subsequently arrested and handed over to the police.

He said efforts were ongoing to arrest the spiritualist.

He told the court that Felix’s parents could not determine his exact age and so they would need some time to do that.
