The General Overseer of the Calvary Charismatic Center (CCC), a Kumasi based charismatic church has appealed to the Judiciary to serve justice to Captain Maxwell Adam Mahama by giving punitive sentences to persons that will be convicted for the military man's murder.
According to the servant of God, it was painful to see fellow humans take the life of one of their own in such a 'brutal, un-Ghanaian and callous manner'.
Speaking to some media men at the church's site during a blood donation exercise held to commemorate his 61st birthday last Saturday, Pastor Obeng insisted only punitive sanctions to those who perpetrated this dastardly act will help to stop the ongoing lawlessness in the country.
He wondered why people feel they could end the life of their kind and go free without any punishment on earth.
He called on the people of the Denkyira-Oboasi to show remorse to God and seek for his forgiveness rather than anything else because God was jealous about those he created in his own image.
''You cannot kill your fellow human being and escape punishment from God when you decide not to confess nor show open remorse to God', Pastor Obeng posited.
According to him, none of the perpetrators will escape the wrath of God when they fail to openly confess their sins and pacify their souls by turning to Christ, the Lord of Life.
Pastor Obeng, however, urged Ghanaians to learn lessons from the unfortunate death of Captain Mahama to reflect on how they lived their lives henceforth.
He commended the Military High Command and the government for showing maturity in handling the loss of such an illustrious son of the land.
''I understand the anger of the military and the government led by the president but I would plead that they serve justice to the soul of the Captain by allowing the law of the land to deal with the culprits.'', Pastor Obeng appealed.

Addressing church members who had turned up to donate blood to the needy at the church's fourth annual drive, Pastor Obeng said 'true godliness was to care for those who lack something one had in abundance'.
According to him, blood was life and therefore anyone who donated blood to save others who are in need is not only being responsible but doing the work of God.
''God cannot come down to donate blood but will only encourage all of us to donate to save the lives of our fellow men and women''.
On her part, Dr Shirley Owusu-Ofori, Head of Medicine and Transfusion Unit at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) commended the church and its faithful members for their continued support to the needy at the hospital and urged other corporate and private institutions to emulate same so as to help stock the blood bank with enough pints to save lives.
