Bernard Asamoah, alias Daddy, an accused person in the trial of the 14 alleged murderers of the late Major Maxwell Adams Mahama has told an Accra High Court that he identified himself in the amateur video.

He said he saw himself in the video shown to him by the police during interrogation, throwing stones at the late Major Mahama.

He said the police had asked him to assist them to identify other people in the video, but he was unable to do so to help.

Mr. Asamoah said after the interrogation, an independent witness was introduced to him, who allegedly read the content of his supposed statement in English and interpreted it into Twi Language, which they had asked him to thumbprint, which he did.

The case has been adjourned to January 23, 2023, for continuation.
