Two young boys have been arrested in Bole in the Savannah region for breaking into people's houses and stealing from them. The two suspects are Zakaria Osman, a 15 years old boy in JHS 2 and Zakaria Rahim, a 12 years old boy in Primary 5. These brothers are in a habit of stealing from neighbours in the afternoon where most of them have left for work.
Because they are also in the neighbourhood, they can determine the exact time each person is not likely to be at home and they break into homes. The 12 years old, Rahim said his father beat him up one day and since then he goes to hide in the backyard of the District Health Director in Bole. He then started spying on that house, and he and his brother went to steal crates of eggs from his house.
The two children also broke into the house of a nurse in the Bole Nursing school. They removed foodstuff from the woman's fridge and cooked rice in her house and ate. The Police retrieved huge sums of money from the boys as well as phones, laptops and chargers.
These brothers are of one father but different mothers. Their father who is a customs officer appealed to the affected persons to forgive him but they insisted that the law deals with them.
The children confirmed that they had stolen GH₵ 6000, 5000, and 3000 from different people's houses. What is more surprising about this is that the children mentioned that there is a man who does "juju" for them so that they will not be caught whenever they break into people's homes. Whenever they steal, they give some of the money to the ritualist.
The children are in police custody in Bole and the Policemen are now on the lookout for the Juju man who helped these children in their activities.
