The 11-year-old boy killed at Coca Cola, near Lamptey Mills, in Kasoa in the Central Region is scheduled to be buried on Thursday, April 8. Ishmael Abdallah is to be buried in accordance with Islamic tradition.
The murder of Ishmael has raised fears in the area as his killers – both teenagers – had carried out the act allegedly for money rituals.
Felix Nyarko, aka Yaw Anane, 16, and Nicholas Kini Kwame, 18, are standing trial at the Ofaakor District Court for the murder.
They have since been remanded in police custody.
On Tuesday, an attempt by the family of the deceased to bury him was foiled by the police, who refused to release the body as they continued investigations.
But reports reaching 3news.com indicate that the body will finally be released for burial on Thursday.
