Just not to look stupid, you want to do a bit of research about it. I mean, it will be awful to ask for urine when what you really meant was water, right? So, literally even Wikipedia could save your head.

Major Maxwell Mahama’s death was a story in Ghana that touched the rests of African Countries in late 2016 or 2017. A more touching lines was an excerpt from Maxwell Mahama’s wife. (You will see below).

Now when a new regime began in Ghana, they kicked against illegal mining of gold which was going on in some parts of the country. Note that this mining activity had effects such as air pollution, water sources destruction and more.

In the other way round, this was a source of livelihood for the people of brouhaha, in Central Region of the country. As a result of the adverse destruction, the government had to send soldiers in those communities to see to it that such act came to halt.

A young army captain leading a detachment were sent to one community and people involved in this galamsey hated him for his zeal to prevent them from practicing it. The community thereby planned his death.

Observation: A galamsey, derived from the phrase “gather them and sell”, is a local Ghanaian term which means illegal small-scale gold mining in Ghana; such workers are known as galamseyers or orpailleurs in neighboring francophone nations.

How The Community Planned Maxwell Adam Mahama’s Brutal Death

 Maxwell Adam Mahama Died

“Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama, had gone for his usual morning exercise on May 29, 2017. On his way, he stopped to buy some snails from a group of women. He paid for it but told them to keep it till he returns from his jogging.

When he turned to continue his jogging, these women saw a gun in his back pocket. They called people around and told them what they had seen.

A group of men gathered and followed Captain Maxwell till they caught up with him and started attacking him. They shouted at him that he is an armed robber. They lynched him with sticks and blocks.

Whilst all these were going on, people who gathered around took videos of these horrific acts. Captain Maxwell begged them and swore that he is not an armed robber but a soldier. They gave no heed and still continued hitting him with stones and sticks.”

 

And he was finally set on fire.

After his death shortly, the video went viral on social media. All those involved in the attack were prosecuted and the whole community experienced curfew and lots of restrictions and assaults from the militants. Many fled from the community out of fear.

It was alleged that the people involved in galamsey organized the gang to lynch Captain Maxwell.

Captain Maxwell left behind his beautiful wife and two young children which makes it sadder.

But He Had A Gun To Protect Self?

(It might be easy to say, but he had gun in his hand, the big question is Would You Shoot An Enemy If You Had A Gun In Your Hand, an enemy you were sent to protect?)

Based on the report, he gave lots of warning shots to make the people go away but these people were determined, and as human as he was, he did not want to kill anyone.

As he gave warning shots, these people kept throwing stuff at him and he got weaker till he fell on the ground. Giving them the chance to do whatever they want with him.

SEE, I know it’s hard to comprehend not defending himself, I get it, but what do you do when you are sent to protect those you thought might not take your own life?

AN EXCERPT OF THE TRIBUTE WRITTEN BY HIS WIFE AT HIS BURIAL.

“I still haven’t been able to utter a word after my beloved husband was brutally taken away from me. Images of his humiliating death haunts me when I close my eyes- I want to believe it’s all a dream but no, no, My Maxwell is gone! Gone forever all because of some people’s selfish desires.

I hear him calling to me for help, Babara! Help! I feel every hit, slap, and kick, I hear him groaning and begging for them to spare his life for the sake of our baby boys but no, no one seems to hear him. He looks around the crowd to see if one of them will at least for the sake of humanity step forward and say, enough!

But no, no one comes around; instead they take pictures and videos which will later torment my family for a long time to come. He begs to see my face for one last time but his executioners will hear none of that and with one last hit, they end the life of a wonderful man after my heart.

Now I am a widow in my prime. Here was a man with whom I have two children and we swore to be there for each other till God himself called either of us home but unfortunately the wicked heart of man cut short my darling’s life in a day.

Maxwell was a devoted soldier in the Ghana army, an intelligent man who due to his security consciousness devoted most of his time to helping in the army and the country as a whole.

It was on one of such assignments that led him to Denkyira-buasi (the community) where he spent about three weeks prior to his gruesome murder. Oh Lord, why do good people die young? He was just 31! Who will take care of my sons?

What do I tell them when they ask of their father? who will be my best friend, ahhh death, you have robbed me indeed. People now address me by the name ‘Kunafo’ , a widow in my prime.

We promised to be by each other, grow old and see our boys grow, get married and even our grandchildren but alas; some people decided he must go and now I am left alone.

Now I am home, receiving visits from people high and low, oh Maxwell, how I wish you will just appear to end this terrible nightmare for me, oh my captain! I cannot bring you back to life my love but I am comforted by the words in Deuteronomy 32:35 that says Vengeance belongs to the Lord.”
