Mahama’s killers ostracized after chiefs carry out cleansing

The Denkyira Traditional Council on Monday June 5, 2017 visited the scene where Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama was lynched to perform some rituals and ask for forgiveness from gods of the land over what they described as sacrilege done by angry residents of Denkyira-Boase.

According to them, it was also to ensure that that the area does not incur the wrath of the gods following the dastardly act that has resulted in most residents fleeing the town for fear of arrest.

They slaughtered a white sheep and poured some libation to appease the gods in order to cleanse the hitherto cursed land due to the spillage of the blood of an innocent soul.

Chief of the Denkyira, Krontihene Odiamono Twum Barimah II, called on those involved in the act to report themselves to the police wherever they are hiding adding that they have henceforth been ostracized from the town.

According to him, their hands have been tainted with blood and if they fail to report themselves and return to the community, something disastrous will befall them.

The Akyeamehene for Denkyira Traditional Council, Nana Akomea Ntriakwa said the incident has disgraced the entire Denkyira Traditional Council.

“We are unhappy about what happened and we are doing this to cleanse the land so that something like this does not happen again. “Although it happened at Denkyira-Obuasi, it happened on Denkyira land and has dragged the name of the town in the mud. So we are here to cleanse the town and the whole of Denkyira so that peace will prevail and life will go back to normal”
