The territorial police in Aswa East region and Kitgum district have put up a serious manhunt for one Ochira Siliman for allegedly murdering by beating, Ocakacon Ben, a 54-year-old lover to his mother and a peasant of Jenga village.
According to Uganda Police Spokesperson Fred Enanga, Ochira took the law into his hands after finding the victim making love with his mother, Aloch Filder, in a potato garden, near their home, on 31.10.2023 at around 9 pm.
“He boxed and hit the victim repeatedly with a stick killing him instantly and thereafter, abandoned his body in the garden. The body of the victim was conveyed to Kitgum General Hospital for post-mortem and handed over to the relatives,” Enanga said in a statement on Friday.
“We strongly condemn such acts of elderly abuse by children. The son whose actions were premeditated, kept spying on his mother, and attacked his lover, with a huge stick. He was rife with rage and anger. Efforts are now in place to trace for the whereabouts of the suspect and bring him to book.”
