Police has said that the man who was arrested on Monday with a human head at the Parliament of Uganda first raped the victim.
This was revealed on Wednesday by the CID spokesperson ASP Charles Twine Mansio as part of the preliminary findings in the ongoing investigations into the shocking incident.
The victim was 5-year-old Faith Kyamagero, a daughter to a one Pastor Senyonga of Masaka district.
According to Twiine, investigations commenced following the arrest of a man identified as Joseph Nuwashaba a born of Kizinda in Ishaka-Bushenyi municipality in Bushenyi district who was arrested at the main entrance of the parliament of Uganda.
“Preliminary findings indicate that this man had attempted to access the parliament as early as 6am but he was repulsed by the security because they suspected that he had no justification to enter at that time,” he said
“He came back at around 10am and attempted to use a different entrance which unfortunately the entrance had been prohibited from members of the public to access the parliament.”
The man finally made the final attempt at around mid-day from where he was arrested.
At this point, the security of parliament told investigators that they felt it wise to ensure that they search what this person was holding because his justification for taking the purported gift was not coordinated and the police officers thought he could be attempting to commit a crime.
On why the Crime Investigations directorate took over immediately, Police said that when the parliamentary security discovered the human head, they immediately sought for the services of the more proficient investigators and that’s how the officers from the department of Homicide was called from CID headquarters.
Related to the same incident, there was a case that was reported the past night at 9pm at Masaka police station by Sengendo Charles a that his daughter Faith had gone missing.
Coincidently, whereas Sengendo was looking for his child, there was also a report at Masaka main station that there was a headless human body (torso) that was got at a sewer pool around Sango bay forest located in Masaka and this case was reported by the head of security of National water and sewerage corporation.
“At the time both the police and the reporter from NWSC had not identified the body and the few people who had gathered failed to identify it,” said Twine
Police secured the scene of crime and called the SOCCO who collected what was thought as sufficient evidence and the body was conveyed to Masaka mortuary for postmodern.
On Monday morning, information was received by Masaka that there was a head that had been identified in Kampala.
At the time postmodern had been carried out on the torso in Masaka and the body had been given to the parents for burrial in Lyantonde.
But when the information came that the head had been got in Kampala, police made efforts to stop the burrial that was scheduled to take place and requested that they should convey the torso in Kampala.
Indeed the torso was delivered on Monday evening and on Tuesday morning, the two body parts were examined by police medical experts to establish whether the DNA of the head was matching that one of the torso.
