Four people have been charged with the murder of a third-year Makerere University Veterinary student Emmanuel Tegu.
The suspects are Charles Oigu, the Area Councillor, Balam Nyekoa security guard, Johnson Kakuru and Moses Sekitoleko both residents of Makerere.
Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, in a press statement released this morning said that the post mortem report revealed the cause of death as blunt force trauma, due to open wounds along the back, multiple cane marks on the back of the right elbow and wounds along the abdomen and the entire back of the victim.
According to police, on June 27, the victim left his sister Rachael Ariongeti’s home, at Namungoona where he also stayed with his brother Sam Okwalinga and proceeded to his church at Makerere.
Tegu did not return home, but in the evening at around 10 pm, he was allegedly intercepted by a police officer Mukose Farouk who was on routine patrol behind the main building near the water tank.
Mukose reportedly attempted to inquire about who he was and what he was doing at such an ordinary hour, out in the cold.
Enanga said Tegu appeared erratic and responded by throwing stones at the officer, who fired three shots in the air to scare the victim but kept charging at him.
Police said the victim
ran towards St Augustine church and Centenary bank, where he charged at the
three private security guards but was overpowered. Ends .
