Students 'kill' man on the run

The students reportedly accuse the man of being against an affair between one of the students and his sister.

Residents of Alero Sub-county in Nwoya District are still getting to terms with an incident in which three students aged 15, 18 and 20 reportedly killed a man.
Denis Okello, 27, died after the students of Alero Secondary School, stepped on his testicles in turns.
One of the students was reportedly having a love affair with Okello’s 17-year-old sister, an act that did not go down well with the deceased.
The sub-county chairperson, Mr Geoffrey Onekalit, confirmed the incident, saying Okello was trying to dissuade one of the students from having an affair with his sister. “They stepped on his private parts and he died immediately,” he said.
Mr Onekalit added that the two lovebirds had earlier been warned against the affair because they are related. “Several family meetings were held so that they could stop their affair but they didn’t listen to the advice,” Mr Onekalit added.
Nwoya District Chairman Patrick Okello Oryema described the incident as inhuman and unlawful and called for the arrest and prosecution of the suspects. The District Police Commander, Mr Moses Okello, said police is hunting for the alleged killers and have them prosecuted.
