Ghanaian Military Officer Killed, Captain Maxwell Mahama Burnt To Death in Denkyira-Obuasi, Diaso

A Ghanaian Soldier attached to the 5th Infantry Battalion (5BN) at Burma Camp in Accra, Captain Maxwell Mahama has been lynched to death in Denkyira, Diaso where he was recently deployed to.

Eyewitness account has it that the captain was jogging in the morning when he got allegedly accosted by some people who mistook him for an armed robber.

As Captain Maxwell was not holding his ID and for the fact that he had a pistol on him, the youths and other residents delivered jungle justice on him.

However, someone else narrates the story thus:

"The people of Denkyira-Obuasi knew who Captain Mahama was. He had been stationed there for 3 weeks to fight against illegal mining; Galamsey.

"He is a regular jogger and knew the route well, I'm confident he didn't ask anyone for directions & the claim that he had stopped to ask some traders for directions and that is why they thought he was an armed robber is an after thought by the perpetrators. 

"Also this community is full of Chinese people who also carry weapons. Captain Mahama carrying a pistol while jogging is no news especially in this community.

"His gruesome murder was orchestrated by the people (most likely led by the Assembly man who is said to be a small scale miner himself) to send a message to those who seek to combat illegal mining; the main source of livelihood for the people in the community.

"They knew him, they targeted him and they lynched him to teach the fighters of illegal mining Galamsey a bitter lesson"
