KWANIA. Police in Kwania have disarmed and arrested a private security guard on mission to shoot someone he accused of witchcraft.
David Ongom Mudong, the North Kyoga regional Police Spokesperson said on Friday that police got intelligence information that Hemdry Erem, a guard attached to Reserve Protection Private Security Company in Kampala had gone to Kwania on mission to shoot to kill his would be victim (names held for security reasons).
The Police then went for him, disarmed and arrested him before he could accomplish his mission. Ongom reveals that the suspect’s SR riffle No. UG RK 2748101731, loaded with 04 rounds of ammunition is now in the hands of the police.
“The motive of the above suspect was to commit murder by shooting on his would be victim, whom he accused of witchcraft according to his confession after interrogation. The name of the-would be victim is withheld for personal security and investigation,” Ongom said in a WatsApp message to Kampala Post.
Erem is currently being held at Kwania Central Police Station vide CRB 211/18. Ongom says they are charging the suspect with “possession of an illegal gun since its jurisdiction is in Kampala not Kwania.”
