Kasoa ritual murder: Police yet to receive Bill of Indictment from AG’s Department


    A Bill of Indictment is yet to be received from the Attorney General’s Department by police prosecutors handling the ritual murder case of an 11- year old in Kasoa.

     Two teenagers, Felix Nyarko and Nicholas Kini are facing charges of conspiracy to commit murder and murder for their alleged involvement in the killing of 11-year-old Ishmael Mensah supposedly for money rituals at Lamptey Mills.

    The teenagers allegedly lured the deceased into an uncompleted building and smashed his head with a club and cement blocks killing him instantly.

    They subsequently buried him in the building.

    On Thursday, July 15, 2021, Chief inspector Charles Annobil told a District Court at Ofaakor that they have received an indication that the Bill of Indictment was ready yet his outfit is yet to be furnished with it.

    On his part, the presiding judge, Eric Oheneba Antwi-Boasiako was worried that despite his order for the service and even giving a month-long period, the prosecutors have still not received the Bill.

    The Police however appealed to the court to give their outfit more time to receive the Bill of Indictment.

    The court, therefore, has adjourned sitting to July 29, 2021, after granting the application by the police prosecutors.
