According to Equator Region Police publicist, Phillip Mukasa, Akira is suspected to have fought with gangsters who hacked him to death.

“It’s believed that Akira was coming from a nearby trading center where he had gone to take alcohol. On his way back, some thugs clobbered him to death,” Mukasa told Chimpreports on Thursday.

Detectives said Akira’s body bore hallmarks of a planned murder.

“He sustained severe wounds on his head. The attackers used a sharp object to take the soldier’s life,” said a source.

The incident comes against the backdrop of the gruesome murder of a UPDF soldier named Pte. Hamuza Kabagambe, 30, who was tied to a tree and burnt to death in Mityana District last month.

The horrible incident, which sent shockwaves across the district, occurred in Tanda village.

Mukasa said then the deceased was “terrorizing residents especially whenever he was drunk.”

He further noted that Kabagambe was a drug addict and residents had on several occasions spotted him smoking marijuana.

It is alleged residents rose up in arms against Kabagambe after being caught raping a married woman in the area.

The incidents signal a rise in cases of mob violence against armed officers.
