The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has expressed condolences to the family of the late Capt. Maxwell Adam Mahama.

The party urged the Armed Forces and the Police Service to launch thorough investigations into the issue and ensure the perpetrators are brought to book.

"The party again admonishes the good people of this country especially the youth to desist from taking the law into their own hands and rather resort to due process in their pursuit for justice at all-time. Once again, the NPP extends its heartfelt condolence to all; especially the wife and children of the deceased and anticipates that JUSTICE would be served in this matter as quickly as possible and within the ambit of the law," the statement read.

NPP CONDEMNS THE GRUESOME MURDER OF MAXWELL MAHAMA AND COMMISERATES WITH THE BEREAVED FAMILY AND THE NATION

The NPP has learnt with utter shock, the lynching of an Army Officer, whose name has been given as Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.

The officer, according to the Ghana Armed Forces, was the leader of a military detachment stationed at the area to help in the fight against galamsey.

It is widely reported that he was murdered by the youth of the area who mistook him for an armed robber on the morning of Monday, May 29, whilst undertaking his regular keep-fit exercise.

The NPP condemns in no uncertain terms, this dastardly and ungodly action of the youth regardless of what may have prompted same.

The party also associates itself with the President's call for a full scale investigation into the matter with immediate effect in order to bring all the perpetuators to justice.

Whilst the party commiserates with the bereaved family, the Ghana Armed Forces and the nation at large, we also wish to applaud the men and women in uniform for exercising maximum restraint under the circumstances.

The party again admonishes the good people of this country especially the youth to desist from taking the law into their own hands and rather resort to due process in their pursuit for justice at all-time.

Once again, the NPP extends its heartfelt condolence to all; especially the wife and children of the deceased and anticipates that JUSTICE would be served in this matter as quickly as possible and within the ambit of the law.

...Signed...
