The first accused person in the case of the Kasoa ritual murder has made a startling revelation that apart from killing 10-year-old Ishmael Mensah Abdullah, they have also killed a pregnant woman some time past.

Though he did not give the exact date to the court, the 15-year-old said this was not the first time they have killed somebody.

On the day when they were committed to stand trial for murder at the High Court, the 15-year old said, he did that with Nicholas Kwame Kani, 18.

“I and Nicholas have killed a pregnant woman in the past but not in this case. We have killed a pregnant woman before. If Nicholas said he won’t tell the truth, I will speak the truth” he told the court.

He told the Kaneshie District Court presided over by Her Worship Rosemond Douduaa Agyiri that, the ghost of the 10- year-old Ishmael has been tormenting him to speak the truth else he would be killed
