KAMPALA – Police in Kampala is investigating the murder of Aziz Bashir, a former driver with United Nations by the boda boda mob.
Bashir 40, a resident of Mengo was killed on Sunday morning at Mengo-Katale.
Police say that while the deceased was driving his motor vehicle UBK 393D, he was involved in a minor accident with a unidentified motorcycle rider.
“He got out of the vehicle, but failed to agree with the motorcycle rider,” said Luke Owoyesigyire, Kampala Metropolitan police deputy spokesperson in a statement.
“It is from there that two motorcycles shielded the rider, who was involved in a traffic accident with Bashir. The rider left the scene, but in an effort of the deceased pursuing the alleged rider, he knocked another motorcycle rider.”
