Police Say It Was A Snail Seller Who Raised ‘The False Alarm’ That Captain Mahama Was An Armed Robber Which Led To Him Being Lynched

Ever since news broke of the lynching of Captain Maxwell Mahama which led to his unfortunate death, there’s been several accounts on what actually happened. In a joint press conference by the Ghana Armed Forces and Ghana Police today June 2nd, 2017 at the Police headquarters in Accra, a new revelation was made as to what actually happened.

It’s was revealed at Today’s press conference that, Captain Mahama had stopped to buy snails and when he took money from his pocket to pay for the snails, the trader saw the pistol and reportedly informed the assemblyman of Denkyira Obuasi that that the young military officer was  an armed robber.

According to the police, without verifying the identity of Captain Mahama, the assemblyman and armed townsfolk accosted the military officers, gave him a chase, shot at him, and eventually pounced on him using cement blocks, clubs, among others, until he died around 10am on Monday, two hours after he had started the jogging.

Meanwhile, the IGP has said the police service has started instituting measures to “eradicate” mob action following the lynching of Captain Mahama.

Mr David Asante-Apeatu said: “The police service which I head, has already started putting measures in place to eradicate these acts of impunity.

“These measures include stern enforcement of the law, liaising with other relevant institutions to embark on massive public education, strengthening criminal investigations, and taking community policing to a higher level.”
