The snail seller who raised 'alarm' for Major Mahama to be lynched discharged by court today...
The snail seller, who raised the "alarm," that the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was a suspected armed robber, was Thursday discharged by the Accra Central District Court.
Akosua Takyiwaa, alias Maame Bono (in the middle of the above photo), was discharged together with 12 other people, whom the prosecution now wants to use as witnesses.
Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), Mr George Amegah made this known in court on Thursday, reports Graphic Online’s Emmanuel Ebo Hawkson.
Takyiwaa, according to the police who thought Major Mahama was a suspected armed robber raised the "alarm" on May 29, 2017 after she spotted his sidearm while he was taking out money to pay for snails he had bought from her.
Meanwhile, the woman who was seen taking close shots of the late Major Mahama’s body, Vivian Asahene (photo below) is among the 19 whom prosecutors have now decided to prosecute.
