The prosecution has concluded its evidence in the alleged murder of Major Maxwell Adam Mahama of the 5th Infantry Battalion, Burma Camp, Accra, by 14 people.

The Prosecution has given all of its evidence against the accused defendants to the Court, urging the Court to declare them guilty of deliberately killing the military officer by closing its case.

Fourteen (14) witnesses testified for the prosecution and were cross-examined by lawyers representing the fourteen (14) accused people.

On May 29, 2017, Major Mahama was lynched while on duty in Denkyira-Obuasi, Central Region.

The military officer was later shown to have been mistaken for a robber.

Following the incident, approximately 50 people were apprehended, 14 of them being screened for prosecution.

They are William Baah, Denkyira Obuasi’s then-Assemblyman, Bernard Asamoah alias Daddy, Kofi Nyame a.k.a. Abortion, Akwasi Boah, Kwame Tuffour, Joseph Appiah Kubi, Michael Anim, and Bismarck Donkor.
The remaining members are John Bosie, Akwasi Baah, Charles Kwaning, Emmanuel Badu, Bismarck Abanga, and Kwadwo Anima.

With the development of Covid-19 in 2019 and the 2020 Presidential Election Petition hearing, the trial was held for a year.

This was especially true because the trial judge, Her Ladyship Mariama Owusu, was also appointed to handle the election petition case.

On Monday, May 16, 2022, lawyers for the 14 accused persons revealed that they would be filing a no-case submission in the case.

The lawyers will convince the court that the prosecution has not proven beyond a reasonable doubt that the 14 people now in custody are the ones who killed the army officer.

They will petition the court to drop the accusations against the 14 defendants based on this.

The High Court has so given the fourteen accused persons’ lawyers up to two weeks to file their submissions.

The parties will therefore return to court on Monday, May 30, for the Court to set aside time for the prosecution to respond to the no-case submission.

  1. Humidity, allergies, workouts, and just plain old water need not be enemies of eye makeup. (Nor indeed the tears of joy we are all weeping upon life returning to a somewhat normal cadence.) Waterproof mascara formulations prevent the waxy pigments of traditional lash-enhancers from going rogue and can keep lashes looking thick, long, and lifted for hours on end without smudging, caking, or flaking. Seriously: Go for a run. Your mascara won’t. Patinkin suggests what she calls the “press, wiggle, and fluff” technique. “Press the mascara wand into the base of the lashes and gently wiggle side to side before fluffing the wand out to the tips. This helps build pigment in between each little lash so that the lash line looks darker, and builds a base of product that will support a curl,” she explains. Avoid putting too much product on the tips of the lashes, which can both leave them looking spidery or clumpy, as well as weigh down the curl, she adds. This is helpful. Funny, I just bought some new brushes last week for the first time in forever. Inspired by Tarababyz on YT and so I got a Goss and Chikuhodo GS you have listed. I like them. So soft. I still have all my old school MAC brushes but I love that they went synthetic and cruelty-free. So I assume you can’t get squirrel cruelty free and none of those listed above are? I want cruelty-free. And so I’ve bought synthetic. I like IT cosmetics brushes for the face because they are synthetic, but also love the ones I feel guilty for- Tom Ford brush and bronzer brushes and the other two new ones listed above for the eyes. If I’m wrong about them being cruelty-free, please let me know. I used the Enhanced Eye Set 2.0 from Real Techniques. First, I start with an eye shadow primer that helps the eye makeup stand out, stay put, and helps prevent creasing. I used the Medium Shadow Brush to apply from lash to brow above the eyes. Now, use that same brush, uncleaned to apply Foxy all over your eye from lashes to brow.
