Lira—25, August 2020: A 27-year-old male is being held by the police in Lira over alleged murder of his mother.
Kizito Omara, a resident of Adeknino village, Okile parish, Agali sub-county in Lira district repeatedly killed his mother in cold blood following domestic disagreements.
The chairperson of Adeknino village, Nelson Obote, says Kizito beat his mother Josephine Abang to death on 23, August 2020.
According to Obote, the young man after a drinking spree in a nearby trading center returned home probably drunk, pounced on his mother while also targeting his father and after beating the mother, she passed on.
The area LC 1 says Omara before threatened to do something terrible on his parents and it is believed that on the fateful day he intended to kill both of his parents although his father escaped.
TND News tried in vain to gather facts about the factors behind the family disagreements leading to the brutal killing of Abang by her biological son.
But according to the local authorities, domestic violence is very rampant in Agali as well as violence perpetuated by young men on their parents as a result or drugs and alcoholism.
Mr Obote, however, urged the community not to take Law into their hands but report cases to local council Courts where they can be resolved amicably.
Lira DPC Benard Mugerwa confirmed the incident and said the suspect is being held at Lira CPS as detectives conclude their investigations.
The DPC also says the file awaits sanctioning for a prosecution.
