According to him, "The people of Obuasi are not bad people. We should be pardoned for accidentally murdering the soldier. We pray for long life and prosperity for the children, wife and the entire family.

"We ask for forgiveness from them. It's like collecting an egg that has crushed on the ground. Nothing will bring Major Mahama back to life.


"We plead with the family, wife, and children to forgive Obuasiman. Our actions have caused them many pains. We are paying dearly for our actions."

Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was lynched on Monday, May 29, by some residents of Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region where he had been stationed.
