Hundreds of security personnel and some media practitioners in the Western Region  on Monday embarked on a walk dubbed  “a walk against mob justice” to drum home the need to end instant justices in the society.
The Servicemen included the Police, Prisons, Ghana National Fire Service, the Army, Metropolitan guards and the father of the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama, who is an ex-service man.

The walk was under the auspices of Ahoto FM, a member of the ATINKA Media VILLAGE in collaboration with Melody FM in the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis.
The walk, well patronized, was to create awareness on the phenomenon where some members of the society took the law into their hands and dealt mercilessly with suspected criminals.

The General Manager of Ahoto FM, Mr Patrick Bismarck Mensah, told the GNA that it was time society stemmed the tide on the practice to avoid killing innocent souls.
“We need not to take the law into our own hands and brutalize suspected criminals. That is why we have the police stations and the securities around. Just report or hand over any suspect to the police, “he added .

Captain Dennis Mahama Adam (Rtd), the father of the late Major Maxwell Adam Mahama was hopeful that by the massive awareness on the topic, communities would be more careful in handling suspected criminals.

Capt. Mahama Adam encouraged the public to go beyond the talk shows and act to put an end to mob and instant justice in the country.
He pledged his commitment to support such exercises to sensitize and educate the public against mob justice.
