Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was beaten to death was laid to rest today, June 9 at the State House in Accra.
When many Ghanaians were at the nation’s capital paying their last respect to him, people of Denkyira-Obuasi where he was lynched were also in tears showing sorrow for his death. The cry by the residents in the village has been strongly talked against by several Ghanaians because of how they treated the late when he was alive.
Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was killed after some residents of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region claimed they mistook him for an armed robber.
He had a weapon on him, which alarmed a snail seller, who in turn called the assemblyman of the area to report him due to reports of robbery in the town.
He fell unconscious after he was severely beaten and stoned after the assembly gathered the youth of the town to deal with him.
He was later set ablaze.
Watch people of Denkyire-Obuasi mourn the Major Mahama.
