President Akufo-Addo has attended the "one week observation" of the late Major Maxwell Mahama - The president, at the event, announced the establishment of a GHc500,000 fund to cater for the education of the late officer's children - He said a state burial would be held for the fallen soldier, while a monument would be built in his memory

President Nana Addo Akufo-Addo cast a sorrowful figure on Monday when he attended the "one week" observation of Major Maxwell Mahama, the 31-year-old officer of the Ghana Army whose brutal killing by a mob last week, shocked the nation.

The mood in the nation has veered from shock to anger as news of the officers killing continues to sink in.

The killing which police say took place within a period of nearly one hour - 9:26am - 10am - has scarred the conscience of the nation and provoked a resolve of "never again".

YEN.com.gh can report that at the "one week" event, Akufo-Addo, who was accompanied by several of his top government functionaries, including Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Maafo, made sure to express the repulsion of Ghanaians at the killing.

He pledged that the government would deal with the actors in the killing. (At least 40 people have already been arrested for playing a role in act).

Expressing his sympathy to the widow of Major Mahama and his mother, Akufo-Addo announced the government's plan to take care of the late soldier's children

The president announced a GHc500, 000 fund, which he said would cater for the education of the children

Akufo-Addo announced that Maxwell Mahama had been posthumously promoted from captain to major.

The president also pledged to grant a request by the Mahama family for a monument to be built in memory of their son. The family wants the monument to serve as a reminder of what befell their son as a way of helping to prevent the tragedy from recurring. The atmosphere at the "one week" event was very sombre, as pain and sorrow gripped the mourners, who were clad exclusively in black. Many of them, including Gender Minister Otiko Djaba, broke down into tears.

The look of agony on the face of Barbara, the wife of the fallen soldier, was difficult to express in words.

Police say Major Mahama was taking a 20 kilometre walk at Denkyira Obuasi last Monday when he was attacked, beaten and killed by residents of the town.
