The ceremony to unveil the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama’s statue, will be attended by his family, the Military High Command and state officials.
Government has approved the naming of the roundabout near the plush Airport Hills Estate in Accra, after slain soldier, Major Maxwell Adam Mahama.
A statue is expected to be unveiled Wednesday, May 29, at the roundabout at Airport Hills, exactly two years after his gruesome murder.
The young Captain who was with the 5th Infantry Battalion died in the line of duty at Denkyira Obuasi in the Central Region in 2017.
He suddenly became a national hero following the callous manner in which he was killed by the very people he had been deployed to protect
Capt. Mahama was Commander of about 100 officers who were sent to the Denkyira Obuasi township to assist the government in the fight against illegal mining.
He was allegedly stoned to death and burnt by the youth of the area who mistook him for an armed robber.
He was promoted posthumously to the full rank of Major by the President, Nana Akufo-Addo when he attended the one-week remembrance ceremony of the late soldier.
The president reiterated to the family of the deceased soldier that government will ensure that all persons who took part in the lynching will be prosecuted.
Some 14 persons, including the Assembly Member of Denkyira Obuasi, William Baah, are standing trial at an Accra High Court over the killing of Major Mahama.
