In a historic ruling, the trial concerning the tragic killing of Major Maxwell Mahama in Ghana has concluded. The young military officer was brutally murdered in 2017 while on duty in Denkyira-Obuasi, inciting national outrage.

After an extensive legal process spanning nearly 7 years, the court has rendered justice by sentencing 12 out of the 14 implicated individuals to life imprisonment for their roles in the heinous crime.

The 12 convicted suspects, including William Baah, the former Assemblyman of the area, as well as Bernard Asamoah, Kofi Nyame, Akwasi Baah, Kwame Tuffuor, Joseph Appiah Kubi, Michael Anim, John Boasie, Akwesi Asante, Charles Kwaning, Emmanuel Baidoo, and Kwadzo Anim, were found guilty of conspiracy and the murder of the late soldier. Justice Mariama Owusu, a Supreme Court Justice serving as an additional High Court judge, presided over the court and delivered the convictions based on the jury’s decision.

However, Bismark Donkor and Bismarck Abanga were acquitted and discharged after the jury returned a not guilty verdict, concluding a case that had been before the court since 2018. The seven-member jury reached their decisions today, January 29, 2024, after approximately an hour of deliberation.
