The Kasoa Divisional Police Command has commenced investigations into the gruesome murder of 10-year-old Ishmael who was allegedly killed by two men for rituals.
Both suspects, aged 18 and 19, in police custody will offer a statement as part of the investigation process to give an account of the event to assist the Police in its interrogation.
The suspects were apprehended on Saturday, April 3, after residents of Kasoa Lamptey notified the Police of the sad incident surrounding the death of Ishmael.
According to the residents, the two suspects admitted killing the 10-year-old boy for ritual purposes so they can make quick money.
The information has since been passed on to the Kasoa Divisional Police Command.
One of the suspect’s father, Kwame Nyarko told AdomNews, his son was not in cahoots with the other suspect in the death of the juvenile.
He noted that Ishmael was hit on the head with a stick by the other suspect.
Mother of the deceased, Hajia Maame Sahadatu, who was devastated and heart broken revealed that her son was engaged in video games the last time she saw him alive.

According to Madam Sahadatu, the news came as a surprise to her because the two suspects have dined and drank with the family and are not strangers.
