Asokwa District Court One in Kumasi presided over by His Honour Peter Oppong Boahen has remanded into police custody two suspects accused of beheading a 5 year old K.G.1 pupil, Silas Kunsana, for sale to a spiritualist at Sokoban Ampeyoo, a suburb in Kumasi, in March this year.
The accused persons, Vikuriba Joe, 21, and Kozel Borama, 25, pleaded not guilty after the charge sheet was read to them by the prosecution and were subsequently ordered to be kept in prison custody to re-appear on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, for further hearing.
It will be recalled that the two suspects were arrested by the Suame Divisional Police Command in an attempt to sell the head of the boy for GHS2,500 to a spiritualist at Sokoban Ampeyoo, a suburb of Kumasi.
The suspects, according to the police, lured the victim with Yoghurt and took him to an uncompleted building nearby where the act was committed.
The spiritualist, Sheik Alhaji Mohammed Maheey at Suame, who feigned interest is said to have alerted police to the incident.
Upon arrival, police arrested Vikuriba with the fresh human head in a black polythene bag, but the other accomplice who was waiting on a motorbike managed to escape but was subsequently arrested.
The two suspects later led police to retrieve the body of the deceased at Sabon Zongo, a suburb of Kumasi.
