I can’t forgive my son’s killers – Captain Mahama's father

Father of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama has acknowledged that although God can forgive the thugs who lynched his son, it will be difficult for him to forgive them.

Speaking to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive, Captain (Rtd) Dennis Mahama Adam mentioned that, although he has lost his only son, he prays God extends his mercy and forgive those who lynched his son.

According to Captain (Rtd) Dennis Mahama, he only served as a father to Maxwell and that, it is only God who can forgive the killers.

“They have wronged God by behaving like animals, I fear God and I love God, I don’t go with people who do no love God,” he added.

He however noted that the family expects unprecedented justice to prevail.

The Denkyira Traditional Council has slated Sunday, June 4 as the day to mourn Captain Maxwell Mahama who was murdered in a small community in the town by a mob.

Chief of the Denkyira, Krontihene Odiamono Twum Barimah II, has announced that a special pacification and purification service will also be held to ask for spiritual intervention and to heal the community.
