Arua: Arua City witnessed a tragic accident along the Arua City-Koboko road on Sunday, April 7, 2024, resulting in the loss of two lives and serious injuries to four individuals.

The incident happened in Manibe Ward, Ayivu East Division, Arua City, along the Arua City-Koboko road on Sunday, April 7, 2024, at around 7:40 p.m.

It involved motor vehicles with registration number UAD 644V Toyota Corolla white in color and another motor vehicle with registration number UBG 377Y Toyota Harrier white in color.
