The Kasoa Ritual Killing as it was named, involving two teenagers who were responsible for killing a 10-year-old boy at Kasoa for ritual purposes have been denied bail.
These two boys will be spending the next two weeks in remand and this ruling was given at the Ofaakor District Court presided over by Samuel Akwesi Adjei.
According to the presiding judge, these two boys need to be kept in police custody and appear before the court on May 4, 2021.
This was after the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector, Ernest Agbo pleaded with the court to give them some time to get proper details concerning the ages of the boy.
After the ruling, a spokesperson for the family of the suspects, Samad Akalilu said;
“We are a bit disappointed that the issue of the age of one of the killers has not been unravelled. For issues of age, we should have gone past that stage by now and be looking at substantive matters. That’s the only disappointment we have especially as the family has been calling for an expeditious trial.”
On April 3, two teenage boys gruesomely murdered the boy at Lamptey Mills in Kasoa in the Central Region on Holy Saturday.
In order to kill the boy, these teenage boys aged 16 and 17 years, lured their victim, into an uncompleted building and reportedly ‘stoned’ him to death.

After their arrest, the two teenage boys further confessed that a fetish priest was the one who asked them to provide the body of a youngster for him to perform some rituals that would enable them to become rich forever.
