Nicholas Kini, the second accused in the ongoing trial for the murder of a 10-year-old boy in Kasoa, has pointed fingers at Felix Nyarko, the first accused, alleging that he was framed.
The trial, which commenced in 2021, revolves around the alleged ritualistic killing of Ishmael Abdallah.
While Nyarko has confessed to the crime and provided details in court about how they led Abdallah to an unfinished building, assaulted him with a stick and a block, and buried him alive, Kini vehemently denies these allegations.
Kini clarified that he and Nyarko are not close friends but merely acquaintances from the same neighborhood. He admitted that Nyarko stayed overnight in his room before the incident, but explained that it was because Nyarko’s room was locked, and he had requested to stay over.
Under cross-examination, when asked about his credibility, Kini stood by his account of events and suggested the possibility of being set up.
