The Ofaakor District Court presided over by Samuel Akwesi Adjei has

again remanded into police custody, the two teenagers, who allegedly

killed 11-year-old Ishmael Mensah for purported money rituals.

They are to reappear in court on May 4.

The Prosecutor, Chief Inspector, Ernest Agbo, pleaded with the court to give

them ample time to get proper details with regard to the ages of the boy.

But a family spokesperson, Samad Akalilu, says they are disappointed

with authorities over the slow progress of the case.

“We are a bit disappointed that the issue of the age of one of the killers

has not to been unravelled.”

The two suspects were arrested on April 3, 2021, after the killing.

Some eyewitnesses said the suspects lured the deceased into an uncompleted

building and smashed his head with a stick and cement blocks, killing him instantly.

They subsequently buried him in the building.

Police said the suspects planned to recover the body at midnight for the supposed rituals.

The two suspects made their first appearance in court on April 6, 2021.

Charity Mensah, a traditional priestess was also arrested in connection with the killing.

But she was granted bail because she is a nursing mother.

She is expected to regularly present herself to the Criminal Investigations

Department (CID) to assist with investigations.

During interrogations, it emerged that she was in touch with one of

the two teenagers arrested for the killing.
