Two arrested over Kasoa ritual killing
LISTEN APR 8, 2021

Two persons have been picked up by the police in connection with the alleged ritual killing at Kasoa in the Central Region.

The two, Charity Mensah, a traditional priestess and a nursing mother, as well as Desmond Nii Adjei were arrested at Amanase near Suhum in the Eastern Region.

Citi News reported Charity Mensah’s arrest earlier but her identity was yet to be known at the time.

She is being charged with abetment to commit crime, to wit murder.

However, her counterpart, Desmond Nii Adjei is yet to be cautioned or charged.

This brings to four the number of suspects being held by the police for the dastardly act.

Speaking exclusively to Citi News, the Public Relations Officer for the police CID, DSP Juliana Obeng, gave assurances that due process would be followed in prosecuting the suspects. 'Ritual murder'

Two teenagers, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini were earlier arrested by the Kasoa Divisional Police Command for allegedly killing 11-year-old Ishmael Mensah supposedly for money rituals at Lamptey Mills, a suburb of Kasoa.

Some eyewitnesses said the suspects allegedly lured the deceased, known as Ishmael Mensah by his peers, into an uncompleted building and smashed his head with a club and cement blocks killing him instantly.

They subsequently buried him in the building.

Police say the suspects planned to recover the body at midnight for the supposed rituals.

The two suspects were remanded to Police custody on their first appearance in court on April 6, 2021.

They are to reappear in the court on April 20, 2021.
