1 min read

The spiritualist alleged to be at the centre of the gruesome killing of a 10-year-old boy at Lamptey Mills in Kasoa has been arrested by the Central Region Police.

According to police sources, the fetish priestess was arrested at Amanase near Suhum in the Eastern Region.

The two suspects Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kiki, 18, told the police after their arrest that the spiritualist demanded a human being as well as ¢5000 in exchange for riches.

In their bid to meet her demand, the duo admitted to the police that they killed Ishmael Mensah Abdallah, a family friend of the first accused, Felix.

They lured him from his home to a nearby uncompleted building where the second accused, Kini, hit the back of his neck with the wooden handle of pickaxe and Felix hitting him with a cement block.

The young boy died immediately.

The duo had also planned to demand ransom from the deceased’s parents in addition to meet the spiritualist’s demands in order for the ritual to be conducted.

Days after investigators set off on a manhunt for the spiritualist, she has been nabbed and is expected to assist the police with investigations into Ishmael’s murder.

Meanwhile, the suspects have been charged with murder and conspiracy to commit murder. The two are scheduled to reappear before the court on April 20, 2021.
