The Kaneshie District Court will today conduct committal proceedings of the two persons, including a minor, who are being held for the murder of the 10-year-old boy at Kasoa.

The proceedings would pave the way for the accused persons to stand trial at the High Court, following the death of Ishmael Mensah Abdallah.

When the matter was called on Thursday, Senior State Attorney, Nana Adoma Osei informed the court that the State was ready for the committal proceedings.

However, the Senior State Attorney said she was informed that the exhibits to be tendered were with the case investigator.

Nana Adoma, therefore, prayed the court for the case to be stand down.

The court presided over by Rosemond Agyiri Duodoo adjourned the matter to Monday, August 16, and directed that photographs of the exhibits be taken to be tendered for expeditious committal proceedings.

The accused persons including; a minor (name withheld) and Felix Nyarko, have been charged with conspiracy and murder.

The two were said to have murdered Abdallah on April 3, this year for ritual purposes, after they lured him into an uncompleted building and killed him with a club and cement block.
