Soldier has been killed at Daiso in the Upper Denkyira West district of the Central region.
The officer whose name has been given us Captain Maxwell Mahama was lynched by residents on suspicion of being an armed robber.
The late Captain Maxwell Mahama was a military officer with the 5th Infantry Battalion (5BN) at Burma Camp in Accra but on detachment duties at the Denkyira Boase of the Central region.
Captain 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.
The women who were alarmed by the discovery of the pistol on Captain Mahama mistook him for an armed robber thereby alerting their assembly member who allegedly organised some men to lynch him and even burnt him in the process.
The women’s action is said to have been influenced by recent robbery attacks in the area with a recent one been a day before as the people in the mining town have been subjected to some serious robbery attacks.
