Mahama murder: Court adjourns to Nov. 14


An Accra High Court presided over by Justice Mariama Owusu, has adjourned the hearing of the Major Maxwell Mahama trial to 14 November 2018.

Fourteen suspects have been arraigned for allegedly murdering the late Major Mahama.

The adjournment, according to the court, is as a result of the non-appearance of the prosecution witness to testify in court.

The reason for the prosecution witness’ inability to appear in court is yet to be established.

The court has since adjourned the matter to enable the prosecution witness avail himself of the court for the trial to continue.

The late soldier was lynched in the Central Region where he had been sent on an official duty to combat illegal small-scale mining, popularly known as galamsey.

The angry mob mistook Major Mahama for an armed robber after a snail seller spotted a pistol on him while he was reaching into his pocket to pay for snails he had bought from her during a jogging session on Monday, 29 May.

The late military officer was posthumously elevated to a Major from a Captain and given a full military burial at the Osu cemetery.
