Five people are dead following a Monday morning bloodbath in Nansana Municipality after a Uganda People’s Defence Forces, UPDF soldier went on a shooting spree.
Lt Col Deo Akiiki identifies the shooter as Lance Corporal Omara Denis Awillo who shot and killed two Local Defence Unit personnel, one civilian and one police special constable (SPC) at Ganda, Nansana Municipality, Wakiso district.
According to Akiiki, Awillo was also gunned down in self defence and to stop his wanton action.
He condemned what he termed as the outrageous act of the lower
Commander against his subordinates and extended the army’s sincere condolences to those whose life have been taken and grieve with the families.
“Joint investigations have commenced to ascertain what prompted the Junior Non Commissioned Officer (JNCO} to shoot his colleagues. The public shall be given more details about the incident as we ascertain them” Akiiki noted.
