The two teenage boys incurred the wrath of Ghanaians when they murdered in cold blood a small boy, Ismael, in order to harvest his body parts to perform money rituals.
They struck the kid with a block and hit his head with a stick and an ax which killed him instantly according to reports.
They confessed after they were caught that they intended to deliver the kid to a juju man who will perform money rituals for them.
