UPDF soldier, private security guard killed during fight in Kampala bar
Police have kicked off investigations into circumstances under which a UPDF soldier and a private security guard were killed following a fight in a bar in Kampala.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, the incident happened on Saturday when Huron Otim, a private security guard picked up a fight with UPDF soldiers at a bar and during the heat of the fight, the private security guard left the bar and went to pick his gun.
“On return, Otim fought with a UPDF officer Moses Mubangizi but Otim was disarmed and the gun given to another security guard, Simon Wana, Owoyesigyire said.
“Otim then attacked Wana, took the gun back and returned to the bar where he shot and killed Mubangizi. The mob then beat Otim to death.”
Owoyesigyire said police responded to the scene where they recovered the killer gun and a bullet but the magazine was missing as the two bodies were taken to KCCA city mortuary for postmortem.
“ Wana has been arrested and is being held at Katwe police division for further investigations. The public is asked to inform the police promptly of any incidents involving private security guards.”
