The Territorial Police in KMP East and Mukono Divisional Headquarters have arrested Nabasa Dan, a 35-year-old, self-employed worker, in connection with the alleged double murder of his wife, Nakamoga Rashida, and their baby boy, Gumikiriza Dan.
According to police spokesperson Fred Enanga, the incident happened last Friday at Nyakiya zone, Sonde – Goma Division.
Enanga explained that due to pressure from the victim’s family for not providing basic necessities for his wife and son, the suspect was forced to invite his wife and son to Mukono.
“We established that, even in Mukono, he failed to provide for them and continued to starve his family. This led to a domestic conflict, which culminated in the murder of both his wife and son, “Enanga said.
Enanga further revealed that at the scene, the police found the body of the mother with no skirt and knickers, but dressed in a yellow vest and black bra.
“There was blood coming from the nose and mouth. Alongside her body, at about 6 feet, we recovered her black and white dotted skirt and baby sheets.
Upon further search, the body of her baby boy was found lying in the bush, in a pink baby T-shirt with blue shorts. The baby had injuries to the head,” he said.
