The two 16-year-old teenagers who allegedly killed a 10-year-old boy in Kasoa have been remanded by the court after been denied bail until their sentence hearing will take place.
Making their first appearance in court on Tuesday, the Awutu Ofankor District Court remanded the two boys who allegedly killed a 10-year-old for money rituals in Kasoa.
On April 3, Felix Nyarko, 19, and Nicholas Kiki, 18, were arrested by the Kasoa Divisional Police command after the two murdered and cut off the ear of Ishmael Mensah, 10, with the intention of using it for money rituals.
Their dream of making money, however, came to a sad ending when one of the fathers of the suspects broke the news of their ill actions to neighbours and reported the incident to the police.
Speaking in the wake of their arrest, Nicholas Kiki revealed that the spiritualist, whom they discovered through national television agreed to help them become wealthy if they brought the ear of a dead human and a sum of ¢5,000.
But speaking at the Awutu Ofaakor District Court, Judge Rosemond Vera Ocloo, denied them bail and remanded them into police custody for two weeks.
The two are scheduled to reappear before the court on April 20, 2021.
Meanwhile, Ishmael Mensah’s remains have been deposited at the Police Hospital Mortuary for autopsy while the Kasoa Divisional Police Command continues to investigate the matter.
