Former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has made a promise to take up the responsibility of supporting and nurturing the children left behind by the late Captain Maxwell Mahama.
Captain Maxwell Mahama was lynched at Denkyira Boase in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central region by residents on suspicion of being an armed robber.
In a tribute to Captain Mahama, former president Mahama said, “As a family, we will do our bit to console our daughter; his wife, and we’ll also do our bit to look after his children and bring them up”,
He went on to say, “The military is an institution that sacrifices a lot to defend us, and for those who defend us to become the victims of ourselves, for us to inflict this kind of death on them is unacceptable, completely”.
Ex – President Mahama then called on the government and all security agencies to work swiftly to bring all those guilty to book.
‘I believe government and the security agencies will do everything possible to bring the perpetrators of this dastardly act to book. We should find out who did it and properly prosecute them and apply the penalty….it will serve as a deterrent to people who engage in mob justice……..it is my hope that we will use this as a lesson to behave in a manner that is disciplined that allows our country to make the progress that we want it to make and I also appeal that we don’t politicize this’, he said.
