Police have launched a manhunt for unknown assailants behind the killing of three people and injuring another in Kapchorwa district.  The dead are David Yeko,43, a resident of Pumayi village in Kapteret ward, Felix Musau,32, a resident of Kaptere village in Kaptere ward and Charity Chebet, a resident of Tegeres ward while the injured is Andrew Chekuri.

According to police, the trio met their death on Tuesday night when the assailants stormed Pumayi village in Kapteret ward, West Division in Kapchorwa Municipality. Preliminary police findings show that the assailants raided Kapteret village and broke into Yeko's home and shot him dead.

They later shot at four other people who were riding on a motorcycle killing two on the spot. Fredmark Chesang, the Sipi Region Police Spokesperson, says that after shooting Yeko, the assailants started shooting indiscriminately at those who were passing and that is how bullets hit the people who were moving on motorcycles leading to their death.

“We call upon members of the community if they have any information leading to the arrest of these assailants to give it to police such that they can be brought to book,” Chesang said.  Last week, unknown thugs attacked a fuel pump station in Bulambuli and killed the security guard before making off with his firearm.
