According to reports in the media, the suspects Felix Nyarko, 18, Nicholas Kini, 19, had killed the boy for money rituals.

Speaking to the press about the incident, the father said he was in the house when his son came to tell him that they had buried the boy nearby.

He explained that his son had told him he only called the victim for the other guy and as a father he wanted to ensure that the truth of the matter came out.
