He explained that an informant (name withheld) came to the

Abesim police station and reported that he received a phone call from

the suspect who solicited his assistance to see a ritualist to help him

to sacrifice his nephew for money rituals couple of weeks ago.

“On Saturday May 15, the informant informed the police the suspect

had succeeded and lured his nephew into a taxi cab ready

to convey him to the place for the rituals.

the suspect,” D/Sgt Lartey noted, adding a hand bag containing
