President Akufo-Addo has assured family of Captain Maxwell Mahama and Ghanaians that the security agencies will work to ensure that the perpetrators of the heinous crime will be brought to be and dealt with accordingly.
Captain Maxwell Mahama was the commander of a military detachment in Denkyiraboase according to his subordinates, on Monday morning was seen jogging along the main road and as he stopped by to ask some women for directions, they saw the pistol on him.
According to them, he was not dressed in military uniform and because of recent spate of armed robbery in the town after residents were attacked a day earlier, the women called the Assembly man who organized the youth of the town to lynch him.
Several pleas by the security officer to the effect that he was not a criminal yielded no result as the angry residents kept hitting him life threatening object including cement blocks until he died.
The body has since been deposited at the Dunkwa Government Hospital pending autopsy.
In tweet to express his condolences to the family of the dead Army Captain, the President assured Ghanaians of his commitment to bringing the people involved in the crime to book.
He said: “I assure them that the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be arrested and dealt with in accordance with the laws of our country”.
Meanwhile, the Military have deployed troops to the area to assist in the investigation process.
