For many Ghanaians, the story that Captain Mahama was from or was going to jogging when he was lynched by the people of Denkyira-Obuasi did not add up.
It seems everyone is right to suspect that the truth is being hidden from us–as the initial story leaves us with more question than answers, as Chris-Vincent noted in a recent article.
Now, multiple social media users claim that, there has been a twist to the Captain Mahama story–and that late soldier was not jogging prior to his lynching as widely reported, but that he actually attended a meeting with galamsey leaders in the community.
According to Evans Gyamera-Antwi, Mahama was killed when he turned up for the ‘meeting’. He claimed before his death, four soldiers had also been beaten by residents of the town after being invited to a similar ‘galamsey meeting’.
Adom Fm has said the station has obtained credible new information in relation to Captain Mahama’s death which according to Ekosii Sen host, Kojo Asare Baffuor Acheampong (KABA) indicates that “the late army officer was going to meet some people engaging in illegal mining in the area popularly known as galamsey when he was ambushed by the town folks.”
This new twist seems to add up, at least more than the old story that Captain Mahama was going or from jogging when he was lynched.
As Kojo Asare Baffuor Acheampong (KABA) asked, who goes to jogging in a pair of jeans and military boots?
