It has been reported by the Ugandan military that the attack which happened at 2050hrs resulted in the death of RA/110575 Sgt Eyagu Simon Peter, a UPDF soldier attached to Gadaffi Barracks JINJA Cantonment.
The soldier was killed at the time his partner had left the station to buy a drink. The duo, Sgt Eyagu L/Cpl Kibirige Norico had been deployed to guard a small gate of Ambercourt road, within the perimeter of Gadaffi barracks.
Unfortunately, when L/Cpl Kibirige Norico had gone to buy a drink, attackers cornered Sgt Eyagu and strangled him to death. They then took his gun and shot his dead body before they left the crime scene.
"In this attack two weapons SMG guns were taken and all efforts are underway to recover them. The attack on our guards will meet the necessary retaliation," UPDF said
Two suspects have so far been arrested as the military target to apprehend the entire group.
UPDF has since consoled the deceased soldier's family
