Major Mahama ‘killers’ sent to Nsawam

The Central District Magistrate Court has remanded all accused persons who are being held for the murder of Major Adams Mahama into prisons custody.

The ruling was given after State prosecutor, DSP George Amegah prayed the court for the accused persons to remand them into prison custody since they were kept at different police cells.

According to Accra-based Kasapa FM, a Lawyer for 8 of the accused persons, Charles Owusu Juanah told the court that he has information that one of the suspects in the case who is at large has been killed.

The judge and the Prosecutor denied knowledge of this information. This caused the Lawyer to plead with the court to send the 19 accused persons into prison safety for safety.

A duplicate docket of the accused persons, the prosecutor said was on its way to Accra.

Lawyer Charles Owusu Juanah said he had no objection to that move, but urged prosecution to speed up their investigations.

The Lawyer for the accused deferred a bail application as according to him, there was still tension in the country regarding the issue.

The case was adjourned to August 3.

Late Major Mahama who served served with the 5th Infantry Batallion (5BN) at Burma Camp in Accra but was Commander of a detachment in Denkyira Boase in the Central Region was lynched and set on fire whilst jogging on Tuesday May 29.

He was mistaken by the residents to be an armed robber after a pistol was found tucked beneath his dress while he engaged a snail seller during his jogging.
