As the dust is yet to settle following the gruesomely and ghastly lynching to death  Major Maxwell Adam Mahama at Denkyere -Obuasi who was mistakenly took as an armed robber by residents. The deceased army officer was sent there as the commander of the military detachment to curb illegal mining.Many are those still calling for the revenge of the deceased person especially by his kinsmen Sissala.

But the president of the Upper West Regional house of chiefs Kouro Richard Babini Kanton IV thinks otherwise, and  has rather asked  for forgiveness and empathy for the people of Denkyere-Obuasi where the ghastly act took place. He initially professed of hatching the idea of sending warrior es from the Sissala land to Denkyere-Obuasi to wipe out the whole town in the matter of hours but for   the sake of humanity and laws of the country thought differently.

Tumu Kouro when asked how prepared he was for the final funeral rites of the slain army officer,he said plans are far advanced to give a warm reception to mourners and also have a memorable funeral rites for the  son of the soil who met his untimely death. He revealed letters have been dispatched to all the Paramount chiefs in the region,he had a meeting with the regional minister since is a national affair,he has also had an extensive consultation with all major concern villages and elders.

He was however in a haste to caution the youth not misconduct themselves for they will be dealt with if caught by the soldiers that will be around. And also sent a strong warning to thieves  not use this as an avenue to steal and thereby denting the image of the respected land. The Tumu Kouro said all this during an interview with Mohammed Ballu on breakfast show on a local based radio station Radford fm in Tumu.
