The police have retrieved the pistol of Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama. The pistol went missing on Monday after his killing.
On Tuesday, the soldiers who were dispatched to the Denkyira Obuasi town for initial investigations and to retrieve the remains of the slain soldier, pledged not to leave until they were able to find the pistol.
On Wednesday however, a member of the unit committee suspected to be involved in the lynching surrendered himself to the police and also handed over the pistol to the police.
The police subsequently arrested him together with the assembly member for the town, William Baah who is also suspected to be involved in the matter.
The police earlier explained that the Assembly Member for Denkyira-Obuasi, William Baah, reported at the police station at about 10 a.m. last Monday that about 9:30 a.m. that day, he (Baah) had received a distress call from one of the foodstuff sellers along the Denkyira-Obuasi highway.
