- Major Mahama's dad wants the state to fast track the prosecution of killers of son
- Three years after the army officer was murdered while on assignment,the killers are yet to be found
- Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The father of the late army officer, Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was lynched to death is bitterly complaining about the slow pace of trial to find the killers of his son.
Captain Dennis Mahama (Rtd) in an interview on Accra Kingdom FM pleaded with the Ghana Police Service, CID unit to fast track investigations into the murder of his son, three years after his murder.
He also pleaded with the courts to also speed up prosecution to ensure justice is delivered.
According to the father of the late soldier, he wants the culprits to be punished in accordance with the laws of the land but expressed frustration over the delay of trial by the Accra High Court.
“Our sentiments are our sentiments. The law is the law. Even though this is what we wish, the law says otherwise, even though we saw close to 100 people, the law says only 14 people will face trial and we are very shocked and surprise how the trial has delayed,” Captain Dennis Mahama (Rtd) said.
”I’m pleading with the court to make sure they speed up prosecution and jail all the people who were involved in the mob-action,” he added.
14 persons, including the Assembly Member of Denkyira Obuasi, William Baah, are standing trial at an Accra High Court over the killing of Major Mahama, who was an officer of the Fifth Infantry Battalion at Burma Camp.
The late Major was on duty at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region when on May 29, 2017 some residents allegedly mistook him for an armed robber and lynched him.
The mob had apparently ignored his persistent plea that he was an officer of the Ghana Armed Forces.
