Ghana: 34 Suspects Arrested For The Lynching Of Captain Mahama

Captain Mahama who was in line for a promotion to the rank of a Major, was lynched in the early morning of Monday, May 29, 2017, when he went jogging in the town a few days after he was posted there.

Captain Mahama, unfamiliar with the city, reportedly stopped a woman to ask for directions but the woman raised an alarm and residents of the town mistook him for an armed robber and subsequently stoned and burnt him to death.

While arraigning the suspects, the State Prosecutor, George Ameke, presented the facts of the case and prayed the court to remand the suspects until the next adjourned date of June 21, 2017.

Ameke said this would enable the prosecution to continue their investigations into the gruesome murder.
