10 Army captain stoned to death in Ghana.
At dawn on Monday, Capt. Mahama went on a usual jogging. On the way, it is claimed, he came across two women, who assumed he was an armed robber because he had a gun tucked at the back of his trousers. According to some accounts, the women called the Assemblyman and informed him that they had seen a man with a gun and were convinced that he was one of the many armed robbers who have been terrorizing residents. The Assemblyman, whose name has not been given, then called two associates and headed to the area where the Captain was seen jogging. The Assemblyman said upon reaching the venue, the soldier opened fire on them. He ran away leaving the two. He proceeded to the police station to report the incident, but by the time the police arrived at the scene, the Captain had been lynched. An uncle of Captain Maxwell Mahama told Joy News, the family wants justice to bring a closure to his gruesome killing. Prof. Fred Mark Bagonluri says it is unfortunate a man who has sworn to defend his country had to die in such a manner.
