The investigator in the murder of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama has revealed that the late officer was shot by two people while the others hit him with cement blocks and metal rods.
The investigator, Chief Inspector Samuel Agyakwa told the Accra High Court yesterday that Mahama was shot.
“My investigations into the case revealed that the 10th accused person (Kwesi Asante) and the 11th accused person (Charles Kwaning) shot the late Major Mahama.”
When asked by the prosecutor, Mrs Evelyn Keelson, a Chief State Attorney, how he arrived at that conclusion, the police officer said he had watched the videos which showed how Major Mahama was killed and interviewed witnesses and suspects.
