Kasoa Ritual Killing: Mahama donates GHS10,000 to family of slain 10 year-old boy

Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has donated GHS10,000 to the family of the 10-year-old boy who was killed by two teenagers for ritual purposes in Kasoa a week ago.

The donation which was presented to the family was done by his 2020 running-mate Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang on his behalf.

In a Facebook post, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku Agyemang condemned the killing and said the donation was borne out of sheer love and compassion.

I spent my morning in Amanfrom near Kasoa commiserating with the mother and family of the 10-year-old who was gruesomely murdered allegedly by two teenagers.
This despicable episode demands national soul searching and an honest enquiry into the direction of our country.
Even as a mother and grandmother, I do not pretend to fully comprehend what my fellow mother is going through at this moment save to offer prayers and words of sincere sympathy.
On behalf of Former President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC, we made a token donation of GHS10,000.00 to the family.
May Allah grant solace and strength to the bereaved family particularly in this holy month of Ramadan.
She was accompanied by MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa and other functionaries of the National Democratic Congress.
