Mr Kwame Adjei, a Prosecution Witness has told an Accra High Court that the he spent seven months in Police and Prison custody because of the late Major Maxwell Mahama case.

The witness who spoke twi through an interpreter said, “l was first detained at Diaso Police Station and brought to Korle bu police station and later sent to the Nsawam prison.”

Mr Adjei who was being cross-examined by Mr Patrick Anim Addo, Counsel for Bismarck Abanga and Kwadwo Anima said nobody told him he would be detained after he reported himself to the police.

The fourteen accused are standing trial for the death of the late Major Maxwell Mahama, an Officer of the 5th Infantry Battalion at the Burma Camp, who was on duty at Denkyira-Obuasi, when on May 29, 2017, he was lynched by some residents, who allegedly mistook him for an armed robber because he had a pistol in his back pocket.

The mob ignored his consistent plea that he was an officer of the Ghana Armed Forces.

The accused are William Baah, the Assemblyman of Denkyira Oboasi, Bernard Asamoah alias Daddy, Kofi Nyarko aka Abortion, Akwasi Baah, Kwame Tuffour, Joseph Appiah Kubi, Michael Anim and Bismarck Donkor.

Others are John Bosie, Akwasi Baah, Charles Kwaning, Emmanuel Badu, Bismarck Abanga and Kwadwo Anima.

On how the witness made a second statement on the police, the witness said it was at the Nsawam prison that he was interviewed on what he saw and what happened in the township of Denkyira-Obuasi.

The defence asked that “spending seven months in custody and being released, what did they tell you” and the witness said, “After my release l was told that they might call me to testify in court as a witness”.
