Hoima: Police in Hoima are investigating a circumstance under which one Jamal Tumusiime, a patroller at SWATT security limited, shot and killed an unidentified male adult who was trespassing via his duty station.

Julius Allan Hakiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson, explained that on the 7th of this month, at around 9:56 p.m. in Busisi, Tumusiime, as he was patrolling his duty post, he saw and shot to death a yet-to-be identified male adult who was trespassing via the ATC mast in Busisi.

Hakiza says that after the suspect realized that the man was dead, he called Edger Ahimbisibwe, a supervisor at SWATT Security Limited, and informed him that he had abandoned the gun and took off.

He stressed that Ahimbisibwe, upon receiving the phone call, informed the police, and the body was conveyed to Hoima City Mortuary, adding that police also recovered a gun (SR 56400194410327) and that the suspect had used three rounds.

Hakiza says the deceased was found with adjustable spanners in his pockets.

In another development still in Hoima, police are stuck with a dead body of an unidentified male adult, about 30-year-old, who was found dead at Mparangasi, Bulindi town, along Hoima Road.

Hakiza clarified that it is alleged that on the 6th of this month, at around 2200 hours, one Anthony Ayesiga unidentified body was lying in the middle of the road at Mparagasi, Hoima Road, with two sacks of sugar beside him.

The regional police mouthpiece asserts that the deceased is suspected of having stolen the sugar, thus calling upon whoever has a missing person to check with Hoima City Mortuary; if not, the body will be buried because it’s now been 3 days since he was killed.
