The case, however, had to be adjourned to September 25 by the presiding judge, Walanyo Kotoku.

The Adjournment became necessary after the prosecutor, DSP George Amegah, prayed the court to give him more time to investigate the matter further.

The late Major Mahama was lynched by some residents of Denkyira-Obuasi on suspicion of being an armed robber.

The soldier was pelted to death with stones and other objects, despite pleading with his attackers to hear him out.
