- Wife of late Major Mahama to be invited for interrogation by police
- Major Mahama was lynched by a mob in Denkyira Obuasi
The Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police will invite wife of the late Major Maxwell Mahama for questioning as part of the investigations into the barbaric murder of her husband at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region.
Speaking in an interview on Accra-based Asempa FM, spokesperson for the CID, ASP Olivia Turkson, said there have been inconsistencies in what led to the gruesome killing of the soldier.
ASP Turkson says following the account the widow gave in her tribute to the late husband she has provided a different and new dimension to the investigations.
“…the account by the wife provides an important ingredient that will assist investigation but we are not in a hurry to speak to her at the moment,” she revealed in the interview.
ASP also denied reports that some of the arrested suspects have been granted bail.
She also appealed to the public to be patient with the police as they conduct thorough investigations that would gather credible evidence to fit the charges so far leveled against the suspects.
Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was the commander of a military detachment that was stationed in Diaso, a town close to Denkyire Obuasi in the Central Region.
He was lynched by some residents of the area on suspicion he was an armed robber.
He was buried on Friday June 9, 2017 at the Osu cemetery in Accra.
