Charity Mensah, the fetish priestess, and Desmond Nii Adjei were apprehended on April 8, 2021, in Amanase, near Suhum in the Eastern Region.
Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kini, 18, were previously arrested in connection with the boy’s murder for ritual gold.
When Nyarko and Kini were arrested, they told police that a spiritualist they saw on television told them to get a virgin’s dead body as well as GHC5,000.00 for the money rituals.
The teens, who lived in the same neighborhood as the deceased, allegedly lured him from his home to a nearby unfinished house, where Kini allegedly struck the back of his neck with a wooden pickaxe handle.
According to the police, Nyarko had reportedly struck the victim with a cement block, killing him instantly.
The two were convicted and remanded in custody by the Ofankor District Court until April 20, 2021.
DSP Juliana Obeng, PRO of the CID, reported the news to the press.
