A Ghana pastor, Bishop Daniel Obinim, Founder of the International Godsway Church, claims that he foresaw the lynching of Captain Maxwell Mahama and wanted to use his angelic powers to fly to help him.
However, as soon as he made to fly, his father, Jesus, sent him a message on Whatsapp telling him to allow the young soldier die because it was the will of God.
The bishop said this in a meeting with Ghana’s media heavyweight, NsromaMedia.
Bishop Daniel Obinim claimed Captain Mahama’s departure was expedient because Jesus needed him by his side in Paradise. The preacher further stated that the villagers who lynched Captain Maxwell will know no peace till they bite the dust.
In the past, Obinim has confessed to chatting privately with his father, Jesus, on a hotline and in some cases, whatsapp.
On Monday, May 29, Captain Maxwell Mahama, a military officer with the 5th Infantry Battalion (5BN) at Burma Camp in Accra but on detachment duties at Denkyira Boase in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region was lynched by residents on suspicion of being an armed robber.
Ghana’s Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul, revealed that the late Captain Maxwell Mahama, leader of the platoon detailed to a mining company at Denkyira-Obuasi, was about to be promoted to a ‘Major’ after he successfully sat his examinations a few weeks ago.
Captain Mahama who is commander of a military detachment in the area according to his subordinates, on Monday dawn was seen jogging along the main road and as he stopped by to ask some women for directions, they saw the pistol on him.
According to them, he was not dressed in military uniform and because of the recent spate of armed robbery in the town after residents were attacked a day earlier, the women called the Assembly man who organized the youth of the town to lynch him.
Several pleas by the security officer to the effect that he was not a criminal yielded no result as the angry residents kept hitting him with life-threatening objects including cement blocks until he died, leaving behind a beautiful wife who can not hold back her tears.
Meanwhile, the Assembly member for Denkyira Boasi who allegedly led his men to lynch an innocent Captain Mahama has been arrested and beaten by military men.
At least four other people are in the custody of the police in the Denkyira-Obuasi District in the Central Region, over the murder of the military officer. The men were arrested after an initial investigation revealed they played a role in the murder of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama.
Also, a woman who torched Captain Maxwell Mahama’s body after he was lynched has been arrested. The suspect was seen in the murder footage lighting the remains of the soldier with a match.
