A state burial has been held at the State House in Accra for late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama who was murdered last Monday.

The senior military officer was murdered while on national assignment at Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region.

He was killed by the residents because he was mistaken for an armed robber after he was spotted with a weapon.

The action by the residents has been condemned with a renewed preparedness by the country to end all forms of mob justice.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised to ensure the prosecution of persons who are found guilty in the murder of Major Mahama.
