UPDF Soldier Held for Killing Biological Son

The soldier is identified as Ambrose Omia, a resident of Anwangi village, Kwera Sub County in Dokolo district. He is reported to have killed his son by strangling and subsequently buried him in a nearby bush.
A UPDF Soldier who has been serving on a peacekeeping mission in the Central African Republic has been arrested over allegation of murdering his five-year-old biological son.

The soldier is identified as Ambrose Omia, a resident of Anwangi village, Kwera Sub County in Dokolo district. He is reported to have killed his son by strangling and subsequently buried him in a nearby bush.

It is alleged that Omia went with two children including his son to graze animals from the nearby bush on Monday, but only returned with one child, causing suspicion among his neighbours.

George Ongom, a resident of the area said the neighbours later launched a search for the kid only to recover his body hidden and covered with grass less than 4 kilometres from their home.

Reports indicate that Omia sired the son with his sister before they were separated by the clan authorities. Omia is currently married to another woman.

Jimton Aguti, the acting Dokolo District Police Commander says they have preferred a charge of murder against the soldier. He is now held at Dokolo Central Police Station pending a court appearance.
