Kasoa murder victim - Ishmael Abdallah

The 10-year-old boy who was allegedly murdered by two teenagers at Kasoa in the Central Region for money rituals is to be buried today.

This follows an appeal by Ishmael Abdallah’s family to the police to hand over the body burial in keeping with Islamic traditions.

In an interview with Joy News, spokesperson for the family, Samed Akalilu, said preparations are being made to pick the body from the Police.

“Yesterday, when we went to court, our expectation was that the body of Ishmael would be given to us but unfortunately, it could not happen.

“However, from the hints we have received, everything indicates that we will get the body today so we can proceed to bury our dead according to Islamic customs and rituals,” he said.

Ishmael was murdered by two teenagers, Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kini, 18, who have been handed over to the police to assist in investigations.

The sad incident happened at Kasoa Lamptey Mills in the Awutu Senya East Municipality in the Central Region on April 3, 2021.

The suspects, giving the rationale behind their actions, told the police a fetish priest in the Volta Region had asked them to bring body parts for money rituals.

Meanwhile, the spiritualist alleged to be at the centre of the gruesome killing has been arrested at Amanase near Suhum in the Eastern Region.
