Police have arrested the person who stole late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama’s mobile phone after he was killed at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region on May 29, 2017. Police investigators traced the mobile phone – an iphone7, to the room of Kwodjo Fordjour, a driver at Denkyira Obuasi.
Mr. Kwodjo is now in police custody after he was remanded in court. According to the prosecutor, they retrieved the phone from Fordjour’s room at Denkyira Obuasi when they picked intelligence that the suspect was in possession of the mobile phone.
The case was adjourned to August 3, 2017, after the police pleaded for more time to do further investigations to consolidate Fordjour’s case with the 19 suspects remanded earlier in connection with the lynching and murder of the army officer.
The Ghana Police Service got hold of several suspects linked to the gruesome murder of the late Major. Asides from the man who stole Major Mahama’s iPhone, up to 32 suspects were remanded into police custody for their alleged roles in the murder.
The police also arrested a woman who allegedly raised the alarm leading to the death of the late Major. The case is still ongoing as police continue to dig deep to find the killers of the late major.
