Police have recovered a burnt body purported to be that of missing Case Hospital Accountant, Francis Ekalugar. Ekalugar went missing on Tuesday when he went to bank over 15million shillings.
“Francis an accountant at Case Clinic (Hospital) Kampala was reported missing on the 02/01/18 at Wandegeya police station after his managers did not receive any response from him when he was allegedly sent to bank money over 15 million,” said Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire.
Police immediately mounted a search for him until today (Thursday) when a body purported to be his was discovered burnt beyond recognition at Kajjansi.
