The two boys who were arrested two days ago at Kasoa, a suburb of Lamptey Mills for killing a 10-year-old boy for money rituals have revealed their outrageous reason for committing the crime.
According to the boys, an unidentified Mallam promised them of power and riches from Benin if they had succeeded with their heinous act.
The incident happened at Kasoa, a suburb of Lamptey Mills on Saturday, 3rd April as the boys were reported to have lured the 10yrs old boy, identified as Ishmael into an uncompleted building. They then hit him on the head with a pickaxe handle and a cement block.
The teenage boys are currently in custody at the Kasoa Police station, to further assist the police in arresting the said Mallam who instructed the killing.
