CDS summons crucial meeting with GAF over Mahama murder

The Military High Command will today meet all ranks within the Ghana Armed Forces to brief them on investigations so far into the murder of their colleague, Captain Adam Mahama.

Chief of Defence Staff, Lieutenant General Obed Akwa said the meeting will afford the High Command the opportunity to bring his men up to speed with information on the circumstances that led to the killing of the late Soldier and also call for calm among troops.

Speaking at a meeting with the family of the late Captain, the Chief of Defence Staff said all those found to be responsible for the dastardly act will be brought to book.

“I’ll be meeting all ranks in Burma Camp for an all ranks durbar to reiterate some of the points made by the Vice President and also what I’ve just said. It’s our intention also to proceed to Takoradi to meet all ranks of that garrison to convey similar sentiments to them. Nobody involved in this dastardly act will escape justice.”

Meanwhile, the assemblyman who allegedly organised a mob to lynch Captain Maxwell Mahama has reported himself to the Denkyira Obuasi police.

Mr Baah had been on the run since the incident on Monday, 29 May but reported himself to the police on Wednesday 31 May and has since been transferred to the Central Regional Police Command to assist the police in investigations.

The Command has thus dispatched a specialized team to Denkyira Boase to continue with investigations.

Meanwhile, five suspects have been rounded up to assist the police in investigation.
