The Mukono Police Division are currently investigating the murder of Agaba Rudeny, a 25-year-old student at Uganda Christian University (UCU).
A resident of Kiwanga, Agaba was shot on the 4th of June 2023 at approximately 1:00 pm at Meru Fuel Station in Kiwanga, Mukono District.
ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, Deputy PRO KMP, said preliminary investigations suggest that a dispute arose between a private security guard identified as Tugume Kadili, aged 27, and the deceased.
“It is alleged that the deceased attempted to climb over a wall fence within the security guard’s assigned area, leading to an escalated situation. In response, the security guard discharged his firearm, fatally injuring the individual. Prompt medical attention was provided, and the victim was rushed to Gwatilo Health Center, where he was later pronounced dead,” Owoyesigyire explained.
He added: “Upon arrival at the scene, the police recovered two cartridge casings. An army green vehicle with registration number UAW403S was present at the scene, exhibiting a suspected bullet hole. Additionally, a firearm was recovered as a potential weapon used in the shooting. Live ammunition was found near the suspected pool of blood. All these items were seized as evidence.”
He said the primary suspect, Tugume Kadili, has been apprehended and is currently detained at Seeta Police Station.
“The Mukono Police Division is fully committed to conducting a thorough investigation to establish the circumstances surrounding this tragic incident. We urge the public to remain calm and patient as we diligently work to gather all the necessary facts,” Owoyesigyire added.
