It has been almost 5 years since Major Mahama was gruesomely killed by the residents of Denkyira Obuasi after he was deployed to the town, to help the government to fight illegal mining termed as galamsey.
Today in Angel Fm’s evening news bulletin, it was announced that the suspect faced court today, for the prosecutor to continue the case.
According to Angel Fm’s correspondent from the court's grounds, the lead suspect, Williams Baah who was the former assemblyman of the area said that he was called by the women selling by the roadside and told that they have seen an armed robber and have started chasing him into the town. And so when he got there, the mob had already attacked him.
The rest of the suspects said that Ghanaians should stop labelling them as killers of Major Mahama because they never killed any soldier and all they knew was that, they were beating an alleged armed robber.
What do you think of the claims of the assemblyman as well as the other suspects of the case? Let's hear your thoughts on this issue in the comments section below.
