Police at Lira Central Police Station are looking for
the relatives of a 40 year old man who was killed and his body dumped by
unknown assailants in Senior Quarters A, Lira City East division on Thursday
near Akii Bua Memorial stadium.
The deceased whose identity is not yet clearly
established is suspected to have been killed by unknown thugs. It is alleged
that the deceased’s body was dumped by the assailants who fled immediately.
The North Kyoga Region Regional Police Spokesman James
Ekaju asked anybody whose relative of about 30 to 40 years is missing to go to
Lira Regional Referral hospital mortuary and check the body.
Ekaju said up to now people who dropped this dead
body cannot be traced since they fled with a vehicle whose Registration number
has not yet been established.

body in a grey Pajero vehicle, dropped it near the new Akii Bua Memorial stadium
