I smashed and finished Major Mahama with a heavy cement block – ‘Alleged Killer’

Another alleged killer of the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama, yesterday, admitted hitting the deceased with a cement block at the scene where he was lynched by a mob who mistook him for an armed robber.

Akwasi Baah, the fourth of 14 accused persons yesterday opened his defense and admitted the offense but was quick to tell the court that the late soldier was already dead when he smashed his head with the cement block.

The accused, led in his evidence-in-chief by his counsel, George Bernard Shaw, told the court that he was not there when the mob attacked the deceased but only got there after he had been lynched.

Akwasi Baahh who is facing a murder charge, in his defense told the court that he had been a victim of a robbery the day before the incident and upon reaching the scene where the soldier was lynched, he realised the deceased was wearing a boot similar to that which one of the robbers wore during the robbery.

He said on May 28, 2017, he was travelling from Dunkwa-on-Offin to Denkyira Obuasi when they realised a part of the road had been barricaded by armed robbers carrying an AK-47 rifle, a pump action gun and pistols who hijacked the vehicle, commanded everyone to step down and later searched all the passengers on board the vehicle.
