MOB LYNCH MAN WHO BEHEADED HIS BABY IN HOIMA
By Innocent Atuganyira
An angry mob in Hoima City has this morning lynched Mr. Musana Peter, a resident of Kiryatete West Cell East division of Hoima City, on allegations of beheading his 9-month-old baby.
The juvenile Ayebale Moris was beheaded by his father on Saturday afternoon for unclear reasons.
ASP Julius Allan Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson, told our reporter that the angry mob identified Mr. Musana Peter and lynched him along Kitara Road in Hoima City.
He said that by the time they reached the scene, the mob had already killed the suspect and fled the scene of the crime, so no one had been arrested.
The police officer condemned the act and said it jeopardizes investigations, something he said is unlawful, adding that they could have known why the suspect beheaded his 9-month-old baby.
Hakiza said that the lifeless body of Mr. Musana Peter was conveyed to Hoima City mortuary as investigations into the matter continue.
He asked the public to desist from taking laws into their hands and handover such suspects to the authorities for the law to take action.
Ms. Nyakato Moreen, the deceased child’s mother, explained that on the fateful day, her husband came back home and entered their house, where their son was sleeping.
He reportedly picked up a panga and chopped off their son’s head, killing him on the spot, and later fled to an unknown destination after the incident.
Nyakato, upon entering their house, where the child was sleeping, was shocked to discover the child lying in a pool of blood with his head chopped off.
She sounded an alarm that attracted area residents, but they could not apprehend the suspect since he had already fled the crime scene.
According to Nyakato, they did not have any misunderstandings with her husband, who wondered why he decided to brutally kill their child.
