The two accused defendants were not represented in court on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, therefore the matter was postponed until February 2, 2022.

But in court today, Nicholas Kani, represented by lawyer Samuel Atuah the second accused person for the murder of 10-year-old Ishmael Mensah Abdullah has said he was nowhere near the crime scene where the murder happened.
