Police in Bududa District in Eastern Uganda manhunt for a 10-year-old pupil for stabbing to death a colleague he accused of chasing his 11-year-old girlfriend.
By reports, the killer has since taken to his heels with his father and is nowhere to be found after he stabbed the 16-year-old boy. The killer is a pupil of Buwali Primary School in Bududa District, Eastern Region, Uganda, and resident of Bunamub.
The police have identified the casualty as Sam Watsosi. He was stabbed with a knife below the naval region of his body on suspicion that he was dating the killer’s longtime girlfriend (name of the girlfriend in question unknown). He was rushed to the hospital bleeding profusely, unfortunately, he lost his life.
His body is still at the mortuary expecting a post-mortem report from the hospital.
The Police lead by the District Police Commander (DPC) Mr. Jaffar Magyezi has issued out a statement publicly declaring the killer wanted by the Police. He said, ” We are hunting for the pupil, who is currently on the run with his father following the death of his colleague,”.
This is in line with the police actions to calm situations down as tensions have risen up amid the incident.
It’s surprising though, for a 10-year-old boy to have a girlfriend. What a world!.
