According to Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, Atuhaire Rogers, who had been deployed at the beat for the past two days, was found dead at the scene.

“Additionally, six individuals have been brought in for questioning to assist in the ongoing investigations,” says Luke adding that a comprehensive and impartial investigation into the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident will be carried out and further updates will be provided as the investigation progresses.
