The 2016 flag bearer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has called on government to step up security in the country in the wake of increased instances of mob action in the country.

His comment comes on the back of the murder of Captain Maxwell A. Mahama.

Captain Mahama was lynched by some irate youth at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region on suspicion that he was an armed robber, after a group of residents from whom he asked for directions during a Monday dawn jogging session spotted a pistol on him.

In a message of condolence to the family of the victim, Mr Greenstreet said: “It is sad to realise that a young and patriotic soldier who has been assigned to a national assignment as important as combating illegal mining has met his untimely death. The 2016 flag bearer of the Convention People’s Party wishes to extend his condolence to the immediate and extended family of the deceased.”

He called for a full and thorough investigation into the incident and urged government to “step up its game in terms of security. The instances of instant justice and mob action is becoming too much in a country where laws exist.”

Mr Greenstreet also called on the Ghana Armed Forces to remain calm and exercise restraint and allow the laws of the land to work as they attempt to find Mr Mahama’s killers.
