The territorial Police at Old Kampala have commenced investigations into the aggravated robbery and murder of Walligo Aron, an 11-year-old primary four pupil at Kitante Primary school and a resident of Nakulabye zone 7, Rubaga division Kampala City.
It is alleged that on Friday 17/6/22 at around 1pm, the deceased was left home.
Unfortunately, armed robbers wielding pangas came to break into the neighbour’s house, the deceased saw, and attempted to make an alarm.
However, the robbers heard and followed him to the aunt’s house where they hit him on the head, cut his neck and robbed money worth 800,000 shillings.
One Karungi Irene, a neighbour opposite the home who had gone to collect her children from school came back and sat on the veranda, only to hear someone breathing hard, forcing her to check the house where she found the deceased lying on the floor in the sitting room with blood oozing from his head and neck.
They wrapped him on the head and neck and took him to Rubaga hospital where he died upon arrival.
A team of officers from Old Kampala responded to the crime scene and relevant statements have been taken.
The body of the deceased has been taken to City mortuary Mulago for post-mortem as investigations and the hunt for the suspects Continues.
“We are also appealing to the community to be vigilant even during daytime as criminals can always take advantage of a lapse in the community security whenever they see an opportunity,” said ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, Deputy PRO KMP.
