Police in Kanoni Sub County in Kiruhura district are investigation circumstances under which an un identified man was brutally murdered and his head chopped off. The body was discovered along the Ibanda –Kazo road on Thursday.
The Kanoni Goborora Internal Security Officer (GISO) Keneth Muhozi told www.mknewslink.com yesterday while at the scene of murder that unknown people killed the man suspected to be in his 40s and dumped the body on the roadside from where it was found in a pool of blood.
Muhozi added that the killers cut off the deceased’s head and took it leaving the trunk at the scene.
The GISO suspects that the body of the deceased might have been killed from somewhere else either in Ibanda, Kamwenge, Mbarara, Bushenyi and Lyantonde, transported at night in a vehicle and dumped it at Nyabiherere 11 cell in Kanoni sub county.
The LC 1 chairperson of Nyabiherere 11 cell, Ms Juliet Nakahima said that this is the third body of unknown people dumped at the same scene in a period of six months.
She also raised concern with the rate at which people are being murdered in Kanoni Sub County.
She noted that some of these slain people are carried in vehicles by hired serial killers who take the bodies and dump them in places where they could not be identified by the residents.
The body was taken to Ruhoko Health center 1V in Ibanda district pending to be yet identified by relatives.
