Major Maxwell Mahama, the army officer who was cruelly murdered in a mob attack at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central region, died exactly two years ago today, May 29, 2019.
As part of activities marking the anniversary, a monument has been unveiled in major Mahama's honour in Accra.
The 20-foot statue commission by the Ministry of Defence and the Ghana Armed Forces is located at the Airport Hills roundabout.
