Kasoa Murder Case: TV Mallam asked boys to bring human parts, GHc5,000.00 for rituals


The two boys who were arrested for the murder of 10-year-old Ishmael Mensah appeared in court today and narrated how they ended up carrying out such a heinous crime.

They were arraigned before the Awutu Ofankor District Court earlier today and told the court that they were influenced by a mallam they saw on TV.

The suspects identified as Felix Nyarko aged 15 and his partner Nicholas Kiki aged 18 were contacted by this mallam who promised to make them very rich billionaires if only they were able to provide human part and GHc5,000.00 for the rituals to be performed.

Appearing before the court presided over by Her Lordship Rosemond Vera Allotey, the boys confessed that all they wanted to do was to kidnap Ishmael and demand GHc5,000.00 as random from his parents.

They also had in mind that after taking the ransom from the deceased parents, they would still go ahead and kill the boy so they could take the remains to the mallam for the rituals to be carried out.
