Locals and police at the scene of crime.
Police are probing the murder of Steven Ndobe, a Bodaboda rider and resident of Ntinda village in Iganga municipality. His body was found dumped in Walugogo wetland on Monday where it was sighted by farmers.

The body had several wounds on the head and back. Preliminary information shows that the deceased was hired by two unidentified men around 10pm Saturday night to take them to unidentified location.

The deceased’s boss, Paul Mukisa, says the thugs appear to have fled with the Bajaj boxer registration number UES 558G the deceased was riding after killing him. According to Mukisa, they got concerned when the deceased didn’t return home on Sunday, which was unusual. 

He says that his wife tried calling his phone but there was no reply. They became suspicious and reported the matter to the local authorities. He says a security guard picked the deceased’s bloodstained clothes and phone and notified the authorities who handed the recovered items to police.  The deceased’s father, Paul Kiyuba faults police for not treating the death of his son with the urgency it deserves.

Kiyuba says he reported the matter to police on Sunday, but wasn’t given any necessary updates on the case. Angry cyclists from Iganga municipality who gathered where the deceased’s body was recovered expressed fear for the rampant murders of their colleagues. 

They asked government to install CCTV cameras along the highway and within the municipality to track the killers.  James Mubi, the Busoga East police spokesperson says police is working out a coordinated approach involving police and cyclists at the sub-county level, which will play the role of watchdog to ensure the safety of all motorists in the district.
