JINJA- Police at Jinja Road Police station is keenly following clues into the murder of Brother Norbert Emmanuel Mugalula who was killed by his student.
Police says there is a possibility that the student had some other colleagues who helped him execute the murder.
“As investigations into this case continue, statements of witnesses are ongoing, including a possibility that the suspect could have had some accomplices,” Police said.
The late Mugalula was on Wednesday, July 3 killed by his former scholar, Robert Asiimwe, a student at Kyambogo University.
Police have revealed that after killing his teacher, Asiimwe wrapped the body in a polythene bag and subsequently hired a driver to collect the disguised body to dump it as garbage.
The driver later became suspicious which prompted him to check the package.
On checking, he found out that the garbage contained a dead body. He, therefore, tipped off the police which came and arrested Asiimwe.
Mr Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson said that Asiimwe revealed that the deceased had visited him two days earlier but suddenly died in his room.
However, according to the latest development from the Police, there is an allegation that after the murder, Asiimwe proceeded to the parking lot where the victim had left his car in Lubaga and tried to convince the caretaker to let him take the car.
The Deputy Police spokesperson, Polly Namaye, has on Monday, July 8, said the caretaker declined insisting that the car would be taken by the very person who had parked it there.
However, the suspect convinced him to talk to the owner on phone, but the voice in the phone turned out to be of a different person other than that of Brother Mugalula.
“Sensing danger, the caretaker informed her supervisor and they chased after the suspect,” she said.
Police, therefore, credited the caretaker for being vigilant.
Ms Namaye called upon the public to remain vigilant and share any helpful information in confidence.
Police also continues to call for vigilance especially as the AFCON tournament continues.
“The general public and in particular venue owners are reminded of the need to remain security conscious and to report to the police in case of any suspicious persons or items. Useful Police contacts are accessible on the MOBB APP,” Said Police
