Mahama lynching suspect: I am innocent; I fled because of heavy military presence

One of the suspects who was arrested in connection to the death of Captain Maxwell Mahama at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region has denied taking part in the action.

The suspect, Charles Buah, 30, who was arrested as he was seeking refuge in his girlfriend’s house at Dominase, explained to the Kasoa Divisional Police Command that he was on the run due to heavy military presence in the area.

The girlfriend is said to have revealed to a friend that, her boyfriend was seeking refuge in her room after fleeing Denkyira-Obuasi where the lynching took place.

The two ladies later informed the police who smoked the suspect out around 1 am on Friday.

ACP Dennis Abade, the Kasoa Divisional Police Commander, confirmed to Ekourba Gyasi on Atinka AM Drive that the suspect was indeed arrested in his girlfriend’s room following a tipoff.
