Three men in trouble over mysterious death of their biological brother

Three brothers are being held by Police in Lamwo District in connection to the death of their biological brother.


Thomas Bongomin 29, Wilson Lutare Salaama 36, and Willy Okot 46, were arrested on Tuesday evening after their brother Geoffrey Okane, 35 was found dead in his house in Amuja South Village in Padibe West Sub-county.


Aswa River Region Police Spokesperson Jimmy Patrick Okema says the deceased was reportedly assaulted earlier on Tuesday by the trio after he had attempted to harm their mother. 


The deceased allegedly threatened to kill his mother when he stopped her mother from attending a ceremony organized by his aunt in the same village for unclear reasons, but she still went.


Okane was tied with a rope, and locked in his grass-thatched hut, where, however, he was found dead later in the day. Okema says police has picked up the three suspects who are now detained at Lamwo Central Police station while the deceased's body was taken to Padibe Health Centre IV for post mortem.


A case of murder has been registered at Lamwo Central Police Station.
