The Great Lamptey Mills suburb in Kasoa witnessed a horrific incident today when a 10-year-old boy was butchered to death by two alleged “sakawa boys”.
As a result, two teenagers, an 18-year-old and a 19-year-old who were nearly lynched by the irate mob have been apprehended and currently in the custody of the Kasoa Police Command.
According to sources the suspects lured the deceased, only known as Ishmael by his peers, into an uncompleted building and hit him with an object, killing him instantly.
There are claims that a fetish priest in the Volta Region told the two suspects to bring human parts for rituals, hence the action of the pair.
The mother of the boy, Hajia Maame revealed that she is shocked by the news of her son’s demise.
The suspects are currently assisting in investigations.
Meanwhile, the Kasoa Divisional Police Command has so far not commented officially on the incident or the arrests although residents are still in absolute shock.
