BREAKING: Latest Update On Major Mahama Murder Drops As 14 Accused Persons Sends Shocking Document To Court [watch]

Lawyers for the 14 people accused of murdering military commander Major Maxwell Adams Mahama have filed no-case filings in response to the allegations.

The prosecution finished its case on May 16 after calling 14 witnesses to support its case and having them cross-examined by defense attorneys.

The accused and their attorneys, on the other hand, say that no prima facie case has been built against them, hence they should not be asked to testify.

Lawyers for all 14 accused defendants, including William Baah, an Assemblyman for Denkyira-Obuasi, made written submissions of no case to answer in court on Monday, May 30.

Murtala Inusah of the EIB Network says that the prosecution has been given two weeks to file their response.

The case has been continued to June 13, 2022, by a court presided over by Her Ladyship, Justice Mariama Owusu, a Justice of the Supreme Court who also serves as a High Court judge.

Chief Inspector Samuel Agyarkwah, the final investigator to be called, was released on May 16 after being questioned by the defense counsel.

The Assemblyman for Denkyira-Obuasi, William Baah, and 13 other people have been charged with murder and abetment.

They have all pleaded not guilty to the charges and are standing trial.
