By Monitor Reporter

Police in Mukono have arrested a security guard for allegedly killing a colleague in Seeta, Mukono District.

The suspect deployed by Pyramid Security Group located in Ntinda Minister’s Village allegedly shot dead a colleague as they guarded at St. Catherine School in Seeta last Wednesday.

After committing the crime, he is said to have abandoned the two SAR riffles at the murder scene and fled to his mother in-law’s home in Nagalama seeking for spiritual intervention from the witch doctors.

“On narrating his ordeal, the mother in-law called the area defence who disguised as though he was escorting him to a witch doctor only to lead him to Nkonge Police Station where he was arrested,” said Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Mr Luke Owoyesigire.

He added that the suspect confessed to having shot his colleague saying it was the work of the spirits that had subdued him.

He has since been transferred to Mukono Police Station as investigations into the case continue.
