Ghanaians are outraged after videos and pictures emerged on social media of residents in a small town of Denkyira Obuasi, lynching and burning a young soldier who was on duty to prevent illegal mining.
According to reports, these residents mistook Captain Maxwell Mahama for an armed robber and stoned and burnt him to death.
Nana Boakye-Yiadom, deputy director of news programming at CitiFM, says now it has emerged that Mahama was allegedly killed because he was interfering with their illegal mining businesses.
So far 50 people have been arrested for Mahama's murder and some residents have fled from their homes, says Boakye-Yiadom.
