Kwaku Manu who is an “Okada Man” in the Denkyira-Boase vicinity witnessed the heinous mob attack that has left Captain Maxwell Mahama dead revealed that he was faced with the golden opportunity to whisk him away from the angry mob but he was equally afraid to help the distressed soldier who sensed the danger coming at him.
According to Kwaku, who works as an Okada Man in the mining town, Capt Mahama hopped onto his motorbike during his run from irate youth and pleaded with him to speed away.
“I saw him running from the crowd and giving warning shots and someone in the crowd was also shooting back at him. He got to my motorbike, jumped on it and asked me to speed away. All that while, he kept telling me he is not an armed robber,” Starrnews have reported Manu to have told journalists.
Detailing why he (Kwaku) couldn’t be a hero to the Late Captain, he stated that he was simply afraid.
“I told him I could not move the motorbike because I was afraid the people might attack me too looking at the way they were coming at him. So he moved from my bike and started running but they chased him with a vehicle. Before they got to him, he was shooting to scare the people away and the bullet hit me in the process”.
