- A Cape Coast court has discharged seven suspects in the Major Maxwell Mahama case
- The seven were re-arrested by the police immediately after their discharge
- The move is to enable the police take them to Accra for prosecution
A court in Cape Coast has discharged seven people who are suspected to have been involved in the lynching of Major Maxwell Mahama at Denkyira-Obuasi three weeks ago.
The seven were discharged by the court on Monday, but were re-arrested by the police.
The move, according to the police, is to enable them put the suspects before an Accra court alongside other suspects involved in the case.
The police said in a Facebook post that putting all the suspects before one court in Accra would allow for "complete and effective criminal proceedings".
Major Maxwell Mahama was killed by a mob at Denkyira-Obuasi three weeks ago after he was reportedly mistaken for an armed robber.
His death provoked widespread public condemnation and outrage.
He has been buried at the military section of the Osu Cemetery in Accra.
