KAMPALA – Police have arrested Lt Col Juma Seiko for shooting and injuring three people following a disagreement after a car accident.
The incident which occurred around 1pm on Sunday, February 9, 2020, came after Lt Col Seiko scratched two cars on Mambure road. When the drivers came out of the vehicles to ascertain the situation, they are said to have engaged in an exchange of words with Seiko.
At this moment, he is said to have picked his gun and shot at them, leaving them seriously injured. They were immediately taken to Mulago hospital while Seiko reported to police after the incident.
Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesman Luke Owoyesigyire identified the victims as Ali Juuko, a 45-year-old resident of Komamboga-Mpererwe, Kasirye Zimula, a 35-year-old resident of Kazo-Angola and Joseph Lule, a 25-year-old resident of Mpererwe.
“ Lt Col Juma Seiko is detained at Kawempe Police station on charges of attempted murder of three people. Investigations into the matter still ongoing,” Owoyesigire said.
In September last year, a former bodyguard of Seiko was sentenced to 35 years in jail for murder.
Justice Flavia Anglin Senoga of the High court Criminal Division found Alex Cherotich guilty of murdering Lameck Ogwang and Fred Sembatya, both boda boda riders on December 3, 2016, at Seiko’s residence in Nakasero.
