    Police in the northern district of Adjumani are holding one of their own for shooting dead a civilian in a bar fight.
    Police constable Albert Orobati 21, attached to Zoka Police Barracks attacked and killed Lawrence Kaweesi after accusing him of stealing his lover. The incident happened on Wednesday night at Zoka village, Itirikwa Sub County, Adjumani District.

    The deceased, a native of Nakaseke district, was operating a local timber business in Zoka.

    On the night of his death, Kaweesi had gone to a local bar where Orobati was drinking, and the two got into a heated argument over one Vicky Okumu, a resident of the same area. It is alleged by locals that Okumu was having sexual relations with both men in the dark.

    Ignatius Dragudu, the Acting Police Spokesperson for the North West Nile region says that Orobati told Kaweesi that “he is the rightful owner of Okumu” before pulling out his weapon and firing at the deceased.
    Dragudu states that police have since recovered the gun with 25 rounds of ammunition.
