Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was killed after some residents of Denkyira-Obuasi in the Central Region claimed they mistook him for an armed robber.
He had a weapon on him, which alarmed a snail seller, who in turn called the assembly man of the area to report him due to reports of robbery in the town.
He fell unconscious after he was severely beaten and stoned after the assembly gathered the youth of the town to deal with him.
He was later set ablaze.
