Capt. Mahama who is the commander of the area military detachment, according to his subordinates, was seen jogging along the main road and as he stopped by to ask some women for directions, the women saw a pistol on him.

Alarmed by the pistol on him, the women mistook him for an armed robber thereby alerting their assembly member who allegedly organized some men to lynch him and even burnt him in the process.
