Residents of Nyabitooma village, Kagazi Ward, Kabujogera Town Council in Kitagwenda District were today engulfed in shock, tears and grief after a 29 year old man ended his brother’s life in cold blood.
The deceased identified as Alex Arituha 33, is said to have developed a misunderstanding with his younger brother identified as Acleo Abigaba who hacked him to death on Sunday night.
A close relative told our reporter on condition of anonymity that the pair developed a misunderstanding around 9pm on Easter Sunday when they were playing cards. Adding that Abigaba who is currently on the run owed the deceased UGX 1,000 after losing the game and he was unwilling to pay.
This angered Arituha (deceased) and he started a simple fight. Abigaba (the suspect) picked a panga and waited his elder brother Arituha on the way back home at around 10pm and chopped him to death.
Tobias Nuwagaba, the OC CID Kabujogera Police Station confirmed the incident and urged the residents to abstain from drug abuse which he says has taken a center stage in the area.
