The police at Nansana are currently investigating two separate incidents of murder by Mob.
The first incident was reported today 15th February at about 6am at Nansana East 2B, where two suspects grabbed a phone from an unidentified person headed home from a bar.
The victim made an alarm which prompted Boda Boda riders to come to the rescue.
One of the suspected thieves was lynched to death by the Boda Boda riders while the other survived after Police intervention.
The deceased has been identified as Isaac Alias Dog City, a resident of Kibuloka, while the survivor is Mugisha Mwesigwa a resident of Kyebando. He is currently detained at Masitowa police while he is receiving treatment for injuries sustained.
In a related incident, another mob justice was reported at Nansana West A, where a body of a male adult believed to be 18 years was discovered by residents who informed police.
“We have established through investigations, that two people snatched a phone from a reveller coming from Unique bar, he made an alarm, attracting Boda Boda riders who responded by hitting one of the thieves until he died,” said ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, Deputy PRO KMP.
The other one allegedly survived and run away. The identity of the deceased is yet to be established as he had no papers on him.
The territorial Police at Nansana have tasked its community liaison officers to move around and sensitize boda riders not to take matters into their own hands against persons they suspect to be thieves, but to report suspects to police for further management.
The deceased’s body was conveyed to city mortuary at Mulago.
