The family of the slain former legislator of Arua Municipality will have to wait some longer for the police to find. The Arua Municipality Member of Parliament, famous for donning yellow was gunned down on June 8, 2018, together with his UPDF bodyguard near his home in Matugga, Wakiso District.
The Police is yet to make any headway in the investigation and arrest of suspects in the brutal murder of former Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Abiriga.
This was revealed by the Inspector General of Police, Martin Okoth Ochola in the crime and traffic/ road safety report issued at Police headquarters Naguru.
According to the report, the police was able to arrest and present for trial suspects involved in the brutal incidents that headlined the year 2018, such as the kidnap and murder of Susan Magara and 15 others, killing of DPC Muhammad Kirumira and Mayuge Doctor Ibrahim Gwaluka. However, IGP Ochola revealed that police are yet to register similar success in Abiriga’s murder case, almost a year after the politician was gunned down.
“The year also
saw unfortunate incidences in which Susan Magara and 15 others were kidnapped
and murdered, killing of Hon Abiriga Ibrahim, ASP Kirumira Muhammad and Dr.
Gwaluka Ibrahim who were shot dead by organized gang of criminals. We are
however happy to note that, the criminals involved in these acts have been
arrested and committed to High Court for trial, save for the case of Hon.
Abiriga Ibrahim,” the IGP said.
