After back and forth over the real ages of the teenagers who took the life of the 10-year-old in Kasoa, the court has finally gotten the real ages of the two.
The prosecutors in charge of the case told the court on April 20, 2021, to allow them time to determine the correct ages of the two teenagers.
They also urged the court to remand them for two weeks to allow for expedite action on the case.
The court presided over by Samuel Kwesi Adjei remanded the two accused teenagers into police custody and asked them to appear before the court on May 4 2021.
It has been established that one of the teenagers accused of killing the 10-year-old boy is 15-years-old prior to the earlier information that the youngest of them was 16-years.
According to a Graphic Online report, the Police told the Ofaakor District Court that school records have proven that the one who allegedly hit the late Ishmael was born on September 1, 2005.
The prosecutor, Chief Inspector Ernest Agbo told the court that the hospital where he was born could not provide any records to show that the first accused was born there.
The second accused person, Nicolas Kini has been proven to be indeed 18-years-old.
With the ages of the two established, it means the first accused is a juvenile and therefore would be tried under the Juvenile Justice Act, 2003 (Act 653).
Nicholas Kini on the other hand will be tried as an adult under the Criminal and other Offences (Procedure) Act, 1960 (Act 30).
