He explained that an informant (name withheld) came to the Abesim police station and reported that he received a phone call from the suspect who solicited his assistance to see a ritualist help him to sacrifice his nephew for money rituals a couple of weeks ago.

“On Saturday, May 15, the informant informed the police the suspect had succeeded and lured his nephew into a taxi cab ready to convey him to the place for the rituals.”

“So the police laid ambush at Abesim-Tanoso barrier and arrested the suspect,” D/Sgt Lartey indicated to Ghana News Agency (GNA).

Upon the arrest of the suspect, a handbag containing one big cutlass, a knife, red calico, a big pot, quantities of cola nuts, cowries and a sum of GH₵300.00 was retrieved from him.
