Lawyers who represent four of the accused in the case regarding the late Major Mahama's lynching have revealed that they are yet to watch video of the gruesome act.
According to Mr. George Bernard Shaw, lawyer for four accused persons suspected of taking part in the lynching of Major Maxwell Adams Mahama, a junior officer of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF), videos showing the late Major Mahama's lynching may be doctored.
He suggested that under the circumstances, with public sentiment being against his clients, people may have tampered with the lynch videos to tip the scales of public sentiment even further.

He confessed to not having watched any of the videos because - according to him - he doesn't want to "disabuse" his frame of mind.
“That is intentional because I don’t want to disabuse my mind,” said Mr. Shaw.
Speaking on TV3 on Saturday, August 5th, Mr. George Bernard Shaw stated that even prior to the court case's commencement, he had to deal with a whole lot of negative sentiment, some of which came from the suspects' guards.
