Owoyesigyire added that according to the police investigations at the crime scene, the deceased was killed at around 6:00am in the morning. He promised that a report will be released after thorough investigations.
However according to the local resident a one Martin Orwech, the footpath leading to the Campus premises is not safe and this is not the first time such an incident has happened.
‘’The footpath has no security lights and it was even once closed by the university administration sometime back but due to complaints from student using the footpath, it was re-opened’’ Orwech added.
The residents request the authorities to put security lights along this path and also deploy police to avoid such incidents happening.
The body of the deceased has been taken to Mulago hospital for post-mortem.
