The Masindi Grade One Magistrate’s Court presided over his worship Selsa Biwaga on Monday slapped murder charges against Simon Okou 38, a private security guard attached to Blue Whale Security Company Ltd.
Ekou was also remanded to Masindi Government Prisons for forty days for allegedly shooting and killing Gerald Aseera, the former news anchor at Kings FM 93.6 Masindi.
It’s alleged that on 1st June 2022 at around 00:30am Ekou Simon who was manning the Coca-Cola depot Masindi branch shot Gerald Aseera dead suspecting him to be a thief.
Ekou was denied an opportunity to defend himself since the grade one magistrate court is not mandated to handle capital offences.
While addressing journalists after the court session, Jessica Kabakuru, the mother of late Aseera Gerald, asked the court to speed up the trial of the suspect who killed his son for justice to prevail.
