Denkyira Traditional Council has performed a special pacification and purification service to ask for spiritual intervention and to heal the community after the lynching of Captain Maxwell Mahama.

Nhyira FM’s Ohemeng Tawiah who was at the event reported on Adom Midday News that the chiefs expressed outrage at the “barbaric killing” of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.

Denkyira Krontihene, Odiamono Twum Barimah who led the purification according to Ohemeng believes the spiritual exercise may even cause suspects on the run to surrender themselves to law enforcement agencies.

Denkyira Krontihene, Odiamono Twum Barimah said they visited the crime scene to perform rituals to ask for forgiveness from the gods as well as parry any resultant curse following the gruesome murder.

Captain Maxwell Mahama of the 5th Battalion of Infantry was on May 29, 2017, lynched by some youth while he went for his early morning jogging.

He was allegedly stoned and burnt by the youth of the area who claimed they mistook him for an armed robber.

The police have arrested over 40 persons said to be connected with the awful act.

Odiamono Twum Barimah said the harsh attack on their soil is an attack on the culture and traditions of Denkyira thus there was the need to perform purification rights.
