It’s with heavy hearts for the people of Western Togoland, a land seeking its independence from Ghana through established order; to come to term with the lynching of a fine gentle Soldier of the 5th Infantry Battalion unit, Major Maxwell Mahama at Denkyira-Buase.
In this contemporary days that we are preaching Rule of Law as a back bone of every nation with Ghana emerging as a shining star in sub-Sahara Africa in that fight, it is unfortunate and disturbing to see section of Ghanaians, exhibiting contrary in the full glare of the world.
The gross lawlessness incidence (lynching) by the people of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region which led to the loss of a dedicated Soldier in such a cruel manner in addition to a few prejudicial actions and obstruction of justice, questioned Ghana’s judicial system and further dent Ghana’s justice fabrics.
We seriously condemn the immoral behavior of the people of Denkyira-Obuasi, they should have known better. But then, eggs are eggs, only few are rotten. Not all Denkyira-Obuasi inhabitants are insurgence to law.
We hereby call on government of Ghana to do its utmost best in the interest of restoring confidence in its people by smoking out the perpetrators at the earliest possible time to face the full rigorous of the law.
Captain Maxwell Mahama is a lost to the whole world and Western Togoland is concerned.
Our heats, thoughts and minds are with the family, Ghana, friends and his unit.
Captain Mahama, “dzo le nutifafame”
