Denkyira Boase residents should be whipped – Prophet 1

Founder and leader of the Ebenezer Miracle Worship Center in the Ashanti regional capital Kumasi is yet to come to terms with the brutal killing of army captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.

Prophet Ebenezer Adarkwa Opambour Yiadom wondered whether there was no sensible person in the town to prevent the mob from lynching the innocent soldier.

The late Maxwell Mahama now Major was lynched in Denkyira Boase in the Upper Denkyira West district of the Central region by residents on suspicion of being an armed robber.

Then 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 police has managed to arrest all those involved with majority of them facing prosecution in court.

But the controversy man of God could not fathom why residents in the town could commit such dastardly act.

“Is there no sensible person in the town to prevent the mad ones from killing the soldier? In any case, had someone reported any robbery incident? Ah! This is nonsense” he bemoaned.

Prophet 1 is he is popularly called is recommended residents in the town be lined up and whipped to serve as a deterrent to others.

“It is sad and we will not keep mute over it. How can they kill a soldier for no offence, if I had my way, the soldiers should be allowed to storm the town, nobody will be spared”.
