The unity of Ghanaians in condemning the gruesome death of the late military officer, Captain Maxwell Adams Mahama, has touched the hearts of the family of the deceased.
The family expressed their gratitude to Ghanaians for heeding to their pleas and demands.
Earlier, the Mahama family called on Ghanaians to cease sharing “disgraceful” photos and video of the lynching of Captain Mahama.
The late military officer, who was stationed at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region, was lynched by irate residents of the area.
Early reports indicated that a woman who spotted Captain Mahama jogging with a gun by his side had mistaken him for an armed robber and raised an alarm.
While speaking on the Accra-based radio station, Asempa FM, a spokesperson of the family, Mr Douri Bennin Haji, thanked Ghanaians for listening to their plea made on 1st June.
“Generally, the appeal has been heeded and we will want to commend the media...that the sensibilities of the family will continue to be respected”, he commended.
Meanwhile, the court proceedings and trial of the suspected killers of Captain Mahama have begun with some 42 suspects including two lactating mothers.
