Police Call Public To Identify Bodies Recovered From Kayunga Shrine

Kampala Metropolitan Police has on Monday called upon the general public especially those with missing person cases to report to Central Police Station.

The appeal by the police follows a shocking incident in which the police and CMI operatives recovered four bodies and a human skull from a shrine in kisoga village Kayunga district on Saturday.

While addressing the press at the Central Police Station in Kampala, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Lucas Owoyesigire said that the security agency has not yet identified any of the bodies since they’re decayed beyond recognition.

“We urge the public with missing persons to log in complaints with us such that we can take DNA tests in order to identify the bodies,” said Owoyesigire.

He told journalists that the recovery of the bodies followed a whistle blower who confessed to having ferried women to the shrine before killing them.

Owoyesigire revealed that the whistle blower identified as Wamala Muhammad told police operatives that by the time of his confession, he had so far taken eight women from Nansana to the specific shrine in Kayunga.

The Kampala police mouthpiece also revealed that so far four suspects have been arrested in connection with murder.

“We have four people arrested, the whistle blower, a one Wamala Muhammad, Kibuuka Junior, Fred Kimbugwe, Sewungu Owen and Kiiza Semanda  the owner of the shrine,” he said


Police also said that investigations are still continuing to establish whether there are still more bodies at the scene of crime since one of the suspects confessed to have lured eight women.

It has also been established that security agencies are interrogating suspects to discover whether they are connected to the recent kidnap and murder of women in the different parts of Kampala.

The suspects are currently detained at Nagalama Police Division on charges of murder as further investigations take route.
