Residents in Ibanda district yesterday were startled, finding two graves dug open by unknown people overnight.
This was in Nyansimbo village in Ishongororo town council, where locals were engulfed with shock waking up to the dug up graves and missing bodies.
Among the stolen bodies was one Allen Asasira the deceased wife of a local pastor Medard Turyakira, who passed away after delivering twins in 2013.
The pastor told Chimpreports that he was on Wednesday morning tending to his coffee plantation when he came across the dug grave to his wife.
Pastor Tulyakira took locals through a long prayer asking for God’s intervention.
Meanwhile, another grave was found open in the same neighborhood on the same day.
The village LC 1 chairperson Simon Tusingwiire tipped police which intervened to commence investigations.
Tusingwiire said his people were now living in fear over this rare kind of criminality.
Police dispersed the crowd from the grave of the pastor’s wife and took the coffin for further investigations.
