Mahama murder: 13 suspects freed
Thirteen suspects alleged to have been involved in the murder of Major Maxwell Mahama have been discharged by an Accra Magistrate Court on Thursday July 6.
These individuals were part of some initial 32 suspects charged with the murder of the military officer at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region.
The prosecution revealed in court that the state wanted to use some of the discharged suspects as witnesses in the case.
The rest of the suspects still face charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Major Mahama was lynched on May 29 by some residents of Denkyira-Obuasi who claim they mistook him for an armed robber. They clobbered, stoned, and set him on fire after he had fallen unconscious.
