Police have arrested the prime suspect in the killing of producer Allan Draville, alias Allano who was stabbed to death in Kireka, a Kampala city suburb.    

The deceased's body was on June 18th this year found by neighbours lying in his studio known as Volume 24 Records, located in Kireka-Kamuli C zone behind the Umea mosque in Kira Municipality of Wakiso District.

Preliminary findings had indicated that the deceased had spent the night in the studio producing music for some artistes, raising suspicion that the assailants came in disguise as artistes having music they wanted him to produce, but later turned against him in the wee hours and killed him.    

 

 

A team of Police detectives led by Geoffrey Katongole, the officer in charge Kireka police station, visited the scene with police sniffer dogs, but they were unable to do much since the scene was tempered with by the curious crowds. 

Since then Police have been hunting the suspects. 

Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said over the weekend, that Police arrested Karungi Peter alias Other-Boys, a resident of Bweyogerere who has confessed to the murder, claiming that the producer had declined to pay his money.

He says they had a disagreement with the deceased after he had brought stolen electronics to him but after receiving them, he failed  to pay him, which prompted Karungi to attack and stab him to death, the suspect told Police detectives.”

Cue… that he had to,”//  

 

Owoyesigyire says more investigations are underway to have more suspects still at large who worked worked with Karungi arrested, so that they face the wrath of the law. 

 

Rashid Mulindwa, one of the deceased's close friends said the killers vanished with all studio machines after the murder. 

"They took advantage of a sound proofed studio to kill him  in silence, that’s why no one heard anything despite the fighting, but they took instruments in the studio, money and other things including computers," said Rashid.   

According to the annual crime report of 2020, 4,460 Ugandans were killed last year by criminal gangs, security forces and mob justice.
