The late Major Maxwell Mahama's Thanksgiving Service was held on Sunday, at the Lighthouse Chapel International, Qodesh in North-Kaneshie, Accra.
The service follows the state burial ceremony for the deceased army officer which was held at the forecourt of the State House in Accra, on Friday June 9.
The service was presided over by Bishop Eddie Fabin, who in his sermon comforted the family, asking them to look to God for the peace and joy that will certainly find them again.
He also encouraged the family to remain strong and steadfast during their difficult period, as the promises of God will be fulfilled in their lives.
Among the dignitaries in attendance at the service were the Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo, the Defence Minister Dominic Nitiwul, Chief of Defence Staff, Major General Obed Akwa, and the General Commanding Officer (GCO) of the Southern Command of the Ghana Armed Forces, Brigadier General Thomas Oppong Peprah.
In addition to the family members present, were colleagues from the Armed Forces, as well as many other sympathizers.
Major Mahama's final funeral rights will be held in Bole and Tumi in the Northern Region, from 13th to 15th June and 16th to 18th June respectively.
