The Late Capt. Maxwell Mahama

The Military High Command says the Police are currently addressing critical concerns of soldiers following the arrest of 16 suspects connected to the gruesome murder of the late Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.

Addressing the media in Accra on Friday at a joint press briefing by the Ghana Police Service and the Military High Command, Lieutenant General Obed Boamah Akwa, said the soldiers were concerned about how the Police would speedily investigate and prosecute the perpetrators of the heinous crime.

“I believe the Police are addressing the critical concerns of our soldiers thus, ensuring speedy investigation and prosecution of those involved in this dastardly act because justice delayed is justice denied so that anyone involved will face the full rigours of the law”, he said.

Lieutenant General Akwa said the late Captain Mahama was on authorised operation at Diaso Detachment Base because he was to relieve an officer who was due for a promotional examination.

The Chief of Defence Staff said the troops at Diaso duly informed the chiefs, assembly members and opinion leaders within the catchment area of their operations.

“The deceased was trying to familiarise himself with his environment when this incident happened,” he said.
Lieutenant General Akwa noted that the murder occurred 15 kilometres away from where the majority of the troops were camped.

The late Captain Mahama was stationed with the Fifth Infantry Battalion and had passed his promotional examination to be elevated to a Major next year.

He was gruesomely lynched by some residents of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Upper Denkyira in the Central Region on Monday, May 29 when he went for jogging along Diaso- Dominase-Anyanfuri road when a false alarm went round that he was an armed robber when a woman whom he bought some snails from saw his sidearm.
