An angry mob in Bugembe town council in Jinja district has torched the house belonging to a man suspected to have masterminded the attack on Shafik Yusuf Bogeere. The mob members surrounded Sany’s home on Friday afternoon and ransacked it before torching it.

Police managed to rescue Bogeere’s family members and took them to Bugembe police station for safe custody as the angry residents attempted to lynch them. Residents accuse Sany together with others still at large of stabbing Bogeere on Thursday night shortly after withdrawing money from a mobile money stall.  

Bogeere was rushed to Bugembe General Hospital where he was declared dead on arrival. Peter Kimaka, a resident of Budhumbuli Village, says Sany is a notorious community who has been terrorising their community with his accomplices.

According to Kimaka, they have severally filed complaints against Sany without getting justice as he is released by police on citing lack of satisfactory evidence against him.
