Mahama's Killers Won't Go Scot-Free - Akufo-Addo assures Family

President Nana Akufo-Addo has assured the family of the late Captain Maxwell A. Mahama that none of those involved in his killing will go scot-free.

Captain Mahama was lynched by some irate youth at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region on suspicion that he was an armed robber, after a group of residents from whom he asked for directions during a Monday dawn jogging session spotted a pistol on him.

Mr Akufo-Addo described the crime as “heinous” and the death of the soldier as a “tragic loss”.

“My condolences to the family of Captain Maxwell Mahama on their tragic loss. I assure them that the perpetrators of this heinous crime will be arrested and dealt with in accordance with the laws of our country. No one involved in his murder will go free,” he said in multiple tweets.

At the time of the incident, Capt. Mahama was not in any military attire. He left behind a wife and two children.

Thirty-five soldiers and two military officers have been deployed to Denkyira Obuasi to conduct a swoop in search of the killers.

Meanwhile, former President John Dramani Mahama has also consoled the family of the victim.

“My heart goes out to my brother, Capt. Chubby Adam Mahama (Rtd.) on the murder of his son, Capt. Maxwell Mahama. And my condolences to the wife of Capt. Maxwell Mahama, his young children & to his mother on the loss of her only son,” Mr Mahama tweeted.
