Minister of Defence, Dominic Nitiwul has unveiled the statue of Major Mahama, the soldier who was killed by residents of Diaso in the Upper Denkyira District of the Central Region.

The statue was mounted at the Airport Hills Roundabout in Accra.

The ceremony was to mark two years since the soldier was murdered at Denkyira Obuasi.

Major Mahama, who was the commander of the Military detachment stationed at Diaso met his untimely death on the 29th of May 2017 after he was lynched by the residents who claimed they thought he was an armed robber.


The construction of a 20-foot monument in honour of the late solder at the Airport Hills Roundabout had been met with stiff opposition from a group of residents of La who say they see no reason why the monument should be on their land when the deceased officer was killed.
