Information available to YEN indicates that postmortem conducted on the body of the late Major Maxwell Mahama revealed he was shot several times when he was killed.
The late Major’s dreadful death in the morning of May 29 this year, sparked reactions from all over the world, with social media playing a key role in fueling comments and theories about how and why he was killed.
However, information sourced from the Ghana Police Service reveals that aside the fissures identified on his skull, there were bullet wounds as well on his body.
This has led to the conclusion that he was shot at before the body was further mutilated.
The Director – General of the Criminal Investigations Department, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Bright Oduro, disclosed that a number of bullets were removed from his body.
It has been deduced from videos allegedly taken at the scene of the crime that one of the soldier’s attackers was overheard, saying that the Major had fortified himself, and was therefore able to run, even after he had been shot several times.
Official investigations also revealed that the late Major was able to jump unto a moving vehicle in an attempt to escape, but was forced to jump off when the vehicle was shot at.
The prime suspect, Yaw Amankwa, also known as Bulla, who is on the run, is said to have fired at the late Major, aside eleven other suspects who also played varied roles in the murder. The police are still searching for them.
It has also been established that the suspects used a double – barreled gun, along with other items such as petrol which was purchased for that purpose.
