Police hunt for suspects who strangled, stabbed man to death in broad day light

Luke Owoyesigyire the Deputy Police spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan area, says that the incident happened when three suspects hired a one Batte Christopher 58, a resident of Nyenje to transport them from Seeta to Bajjo village between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. 

However, the suspects while at Bajjo, strangled and stabbed the victim five times on the head and three times on the right hand, killing him instantly. 

“They then bundled him in the trunk of his vehicle registration number UAY 765H Toyota Premio white in color. As they were driving the vehicle away hastily, it got stuck and they had to call people around to help push it back on road” Owoyesigyire says.

During the exercise of pushing the car, people saw blood leaking from the car trunk and demanded to know what the trio was carrying, but the suspects didn't give clear answers.

On opening the car trunk, the body was discovered and immediately a mob attacked the suspects injuring one while two escaped in the confusion (a man and a woman).  
Police is now hunting for the duo. The deceased’s vehicle was also damaged in process of the mob action.

Police was later called and went to the scene where they rescued one of the suspects and rushed him to CPR medical Centre in Mukono town for treatment pending interrogation. 
A knife and rope were recovered in the vehicle and the body conveyed to Mulago city mortuary for postmortem.
