Police in Kawempe are holding Gideon Nabasa, 31, a private security guard with Afrisafe Guard company, over a murder case.
ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, said on Sunday that while officers were on motorised patrols in Kazo Lugoba Zone Kaazo Ward, Nabweru Division Wakiso District, they found Nabasa carrying a sack on a motorcycle registration number UFG 635P.
The officers were suspicious of what he was carrying and on asking for a search.
They found a dead body of a male adult suspected to be in his early 20s in the sack and immediately arrested him.
A team of investigators was called in at the scene and the body was later conveyed to city mortuary Mulago for a post-mortem.
Owoyesigyire said the body also had two wounds suspected to be a result of a stabbing.
“Nabasa hasn’t yet cooperated well with the police to help us identify the deceased and where he got the body from. Our investigations to identify the deceased are ongoing,” he said.
The suspect is detained at Kawempe Police Station on allegations of murder.
