Residents of Kasoa in the Central Region were on Saturday, April 3, thrown in a state of shock following the murder of an 11-year-old boy by two teenagers at Coca Cola near Lamptey Mills.
The deceased identified as Ismael Mensah was lured to an uncompleted building and murdered by the two suspects who are currently in police custody assisting with investigation.
The father of one of the suspects, who was first to discover the body of the murdered victim in an interview with the media indicated that his son denied involved in the murder.
Speaking to the press about the incident, the father said he was in the house when his son came to tell him that they had buried the boy nearby.
He went to dig up up the body and chase after the other suspect because his son had told him he did not partake in the killing. After apprehending the other boy, he informed other people around and they took the boy to the police station.
He explained that his son had told him he only called the victim for the other guy and as a father he wanted to ensure that the truth of the matter came out.
