Ghana’s dance hall giant, Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known in showbiz as Shatta Wale, has paid tribute to the late Captain Maxwell Adams Mahama in a song.
The song titled ‘Justice for Mahama’ commiserates with the family of the lost military man who was murdered at Denkyira Boase in the Central Region of Ghana.
Capt. Mahama was an officer of the 5th Infantry Battalion, and was said to have been on his daily jogging routine on Monday when he was lynched by some residents of Diaso. He had been deployed there as part of some anti-illegal mining operation.
The residents claimed Captain Mahama was a robber as he was in mufti at the time. Reports said he was armed with a gun while jogging, and residents who saw him with the gun raised an alarm, attracting some of the youth in the community who attacked and killed him.
