Under their umbrella, Lukodi War Survivors, the group says that the site will act as a war museum, learning and research centers on the Lord`s Resistance Army insurgency, a peace center, and special dedication to those who lost their lives and also generate income.
Walter Tootika, Omel Sub County councillor and the deputy speaker Bosco Abonga, said they resolved quickly on Friday to avoid such occurrences since the area is heavily infiltrated by the scrap dealers and explosives left behind during the Lord`s Resistance Army (LRA) insurgency.
Abonga told URN that the incident occurred around mid-day on Wednesday along Ogwari Road as the pupils were on their way home. He explains that the minor branched into a bush along the road to harvest brooms where they discovered the unexploded ordnance and picked it.
The injured are Derrick Okello (13) and Brian Rubangakene (12). They are all pupils of Bul Kur Primary School in Bul Kur ‘’B’’ Village.
