According to the police reports detailing what led to the late Major Mahama’s death, it was a snail seller who snitched on the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama.
Apparently, the late Major Mahama had stopped by to buy snails and it was this woman who after seeing a pistol on his side pocket, called on the Assembly member for Denkyira-Boase, William Baah who organized the youth for his lynching.
The name of the woman according to what Ghpage.com gathers is Akosua Takyiwaa, aka Maame Bono.
According to the police, she was arrested after her return to the village barely a fortnight after the unfortunate incident.
Her arrest brings to 52 the number of suspects who have been linked to the death of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was buried last Friday, June 9, 2017.
There are still conflicting accounts as to circumstances that led to the death of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was the platoon Commander at Denkyira-Boase in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region.
Whereas the military command and police investigators claim he was going on jogging and stopped to buy snails from the woman who saw a sidearm on him and “snitched” the assemblyman William Baah who then mobilized angry residents to lynch him, another account claimed he was invited to a meeting with a prior motive of killing him.
52 suspects have so far been arrested in connection with the incident with the latest being 7 who were last Friday remanded by an Accra Central District Court including; Akwasi Baah, Solomon Sackey, Kwame Agyei, Joseph Appiah Kubi (aka Kum Dede), Akosua Takyiwaa (aka Maabono), Esther Dauda (aka Asha) and Michael Kumah (aka Kojo Anim) to reappear on June 21, 2017
