Two teenage boys who have been arrested for the murder of a 10-year-old boy at Kasoa have finally spoken.
In a video after their arrest, the boys who have been tagged as 'sakawa' boys (money ritualists) have narrated how they ended up killing the boy.
The two teenagers were arrested on Saturday, April 3, 2021, for the murder of a 10-year-old boy identified as Ishmael.
According to reports in the media, the suspects Felix Nyarko, 18, Nicholas Kini, 19, had killed the boy for money rituals.
They were apprehended by the Kasoa Divisional Police Command following a distress call about a homicide incident in Lamptey Mills.
Following their arrest, the two boys have confirmed that they indeed took the life of the young boy.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh, one of the suspects indicated that he left the boy in the care of his colleague only to return and find out that he had hit him with a club.
The boy added that his friend dug a hole to bury the boy while telling him that some people will come and carry him away and give them money.
The boy who was accused by his colleague as the mastermind was, however, quick to deny the partner's claim describing his friend as a liar.
The video and the boy's revelation has stirred anger among many Ghanaians.
Meanwhile, Hajia Maame, the mother of the 10-year-old boy has recounted how she got to know about her son's murder.
The bereaved mother disclosed that the elder sister of murdered 10-year-old Ishmael came to break the heart-rending news to her.
