DSP Sheila Kesse Abayie Buckman, Assistant Police Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Police Service, has indicated that investigations into the murder of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama will go beyond the video evidence that has been provided.
According to her, there are several factors being considered in relation to the matter to ensure that justice is served, adding that progress has been made in investigations.
Mr Mahama was lynched on Monday May 29 by irate youth of Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region on suspicion that he was an armed robber. The police have so far picked up five suspects in relation to the matter.
Speaking on this development in an interview with Chief Jerry Forson, host of Ghana Yensom on Accra100.5FM on Thursday, 1 June, DSP Buckman said: “We are taking into account several things, we will go beyond the video evidence that all of us have seen.
“We are hopeful that with the progress that we have made as far as investigations into this matter is concerned, justice will be delivered.”
She further appealed to the general public not to resort to instant justice to punish people they suspect to be criminals because such practice endangers the lives of innocent citizens.
