The Moderator of Presbyterian Church of Ghana Rt. Rev. Prof Joseph Obiri Yeboah Mante has described it as a demonic act killing an 11-year old by two teenagers for money rituals at Kasoa.
11-year-old Ishmael Abdallah was murdered by two teenagers, Felix Nyarko, 16, and Nicholas Kini, 18, who are in court.
The sad incident happened at Kasoa Lamptey Mills in the Awutu Senya East Municipality in the Central Region on April 3, 2021.
The suspects, giving the rationale behind their actions, told the police a fetish priest asked them to bring human body parts for money rituals.
Speaking on the matter for the first time at the 48th Presbytery Session at Ramseyer Centre in Abetifi in the Eastern Region, the moderator described the act as purely demonic and urged the media that instead of broadcasting the agents’ preaching on prosperity, which hypes “fetish priest” and syncretistic preaching, the agents should make conscious effort to always touch on Christ-centered message.
The 48th Presbytery Session at Ramseyer Centre, Abetifi was on the theme “Let Christ Be Formed in You: Equipping the Saints for Ministry in Christ”.
