Two teenage boys, 19 and 18 have been arrested by the Police in Kasoa in the Central region for killing a 10-year-old boy for alleged money rituals.
In a video seen by Starrfm.com.gh, the two boys are handcuffed and placed in the bucket of a police pick-up vehicle while surrounded by an angry mob.
Information gathered indicates that 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 angry mob insisted on lynching the boys when they were arrested and could be heard cursing and throwing insults at the boys but were prevented by the Police.
The suspects are currently assisting in investigations.
