The two teenagers who allegedly killed an 11-year-old boy at Coca-Cola, near Lamptey Mills in Kasoa are to reappear before the Ofaakor District Magistrate Court today.
Felix Nyarko, 15, and Nicholas Kini, 17, were remanded into police custody on April 6, 2021, to allow the police to conduct more investigations into the matter.
They are alleged to have conspired to kill the Class Four pupil of the Maranatha School, Ishmael Mensah, three weeks ago. The entire Lamptey Millis area was thrown into a state of shock and mourning in the mid-morning of Holy Saturday when news emerged that two teenagers had killed a young boy.
The incident flooded social media networks after the arrest of the suspects. In their first appearance before the Ofaakor District Magistrate Court, the Prosecutor, Chief Inspector, Ernest Agbo, said the accused persons, Felix Nyarko, aka Yaw Anane, 16, a mason labourer, who is the first accused person, and Nicholas Kini Kwame, 18, a student and second accused person, had initially planned to demand a ransom of GH¢5,000, and add Ishmael Mensah Abdallah, the deceased, to it to present to a spiritualist for rituals.
Presenting the facts of the case, Chief Inspector Agbo explained that on Saturday, April 3, 2021, the second accused person went to hide in an uncompleted building near the first accused person’s house where they planned to carry out their operation.
He said, Nicholas then picked the club and hit Ishmael hard on the back of the neck, while Felix “used a cement block to hit his head, killing him instantly”.
