Thirty-Six (36) year old Kwame Tufour, a farmer based in Denkyira-Boase in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region has confessed to pummeling the head of the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who resulted in his unfortunate death.

The suspect who was on the run, was last week apprehended by the police after captured in a video footage hitting the head of the soldier with a cement block.

Upon his arrest, he admitted to the offence saying “I was around carrying wood when I heard people shouting thief, thief so I rushed there picked a cement block and hit him”

Police investigators have disclosed that about 51 suspects have so far been arrested in connection with the incident with the latest being 7 who were on Friday remanded by an Accra Central District Court including; Akwasi Baah, Solomon Sackey, Kwame Agyei, Joseph Appiah Kubi (aka Kum Dede), Akosua Takyiwaa (aka Maabono), Esther Dauda (aka Asha) and Michael Kumah (aka Kojo Anim) to reappear on June 21, 2017

All suspects have been provisionally charged with two counts of murder contrary to section 46 of the criminal code and other offences act of 1960, Act 29 as well as conspiracy to commit crime to wit murder: contrary to section 23(1) and 46 of the criminal and other offences act 1960 (Act 29).

Meanwhile the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was on Friday June 9, 2017 was given a state burial at the military cemetery in Osu after he was mistaken for a robber and killed by residents of the area in a mob attack.

There are still conflicting accounts as to circumstances that led to the death of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was the platoon Commander at Denkyira-Boase in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region.

Whereas military command and police investigators claim he was going on jogging and stopped to a buy snails from the woman who saw a sidearm on him and snitched the assemblyman William Baah who then mobilized angry residents to lynch him, another account claimed he was invited to a meeting with a prior motive of killing him.

  1. They should be made to suffer even the more until they eventually die. They should be pelted with different kinds of stones and whipped gravely with a heavy stick and later lit fire with their shameful attire and allow their body to blaze until death rescues them

    • In the same Bible, Jesus said that he who is without sin should cast the first stone. Most Ghanaians condemning the act now would have done same if they were there and your comments even suggests same.

      • Comment: i support you mawuko because according to the bible it says that the heart of man is evil continually. We can do the same thing if we were also there.
        And even apart from that you can also think of these. Assuming it were to be your relatives who was involved in this incident, will you agree for them to be killed. We must learn to forgive each other because christ has given us the power to do so and HE has been of good example to us. tt
