MUST student murder suspects arrested
Police in Mbarara confirmed that they have arrested four people in connection with the murder of Brian Akampurira, a second year medical student of Mbarara University of Science and Technology that occurred last week.
The deceased was found lying dead by residents in the nearby swamp that alerted the police. Since then, police had been hunting for the criminals who ambushed and hacked the boy to death until they were arrested.
The arrests followed a joint operation with other sister security agencies in which 50 suspects were arrested including the four suspected killers.
They were arrested with suspected stolen property including phones, a TV set, bags and other household materials that would be used as evidence when taken to court.
Brian was laid to rest at his ancestral home on Sunday.
