Two teenagers are awaiting their fate before the High Court in Accra for the alleged murder of 10-year-old Ismael Mensah Abdella in Kasoa.

After three years of legal proceedings, the court is set to make its decision on May 7.

The court presided over by Justice Lydia Osei Marfo, directed lawyers for the accused persons to file their closing addresses by March 18. Following this, the court will conduct a summing up on May 7 and allow the jury to return their verdict.

While the Prosecution, led by Senior State Attorney Dorcas Fellie, adhered to the court's directive on February 14 and filed their closing address,  the defense lawyers encountered difficulties. They explained to the court that circumstances beyond their control prevented them from filing on time and requested an extension until Monday.

The teenagers are standing trial for the alleged murder of Ismael Mensah Abdella in 2021, purportedly for money rituals. The case has been adjourned to May 7.
