Police in Lira District are holding a 45-year-old man on allegations of stabbing his son to death.

The suspect is identified as Alfonse Okwir, a resident of Abongo-rwot village, Abongo-rwot parish, Agali Sub-county in Lira District.

It’s alleged that on Wednesday evening, Okwir stabbed his 22-year-old son identified as Ceaser Eran in a struggle for a mobile phone on which money had been sent. 

Preliminary reports indicate that the deceased together with his father had done casual labor whose payment of 7,000 shillings was sent through mobile money into his father’s phone.

However, since the money reached late when the mobile money points in the area had closed, the old man suggested that the money be withdrawn in the morning, something which did not go down well for Eran who wanted to find ways of withdrawing the money that evening.

A scuffle ensued as the boy forced his hand into his father’s pocket to remove the phone, forcing his dad to stab him with a kitchen knife and killing him instantly.

James Ekaju, the North Kyoga Police spokesperson confirmed the incident saying one person; father to the deceased has been arrested in connection to the murder.
