Tension has engulfed Apokor village in Teso North sub-county, Busia County after a man who was allegedly shot dead by police in April was spotted walking in the area.
The shocking return of the ‘thug after burial’ has sent shivers down the spine of Angurai villagers.
Confirming the incident, Busia County Deputy Assembly Speaker Lawrence Okaale said: “On April 29, thugs attacked Angurai market. Fortunately, police officers responded in time and managed to kill one of them. His body was moved to the mortuary and later buried. But a shocking incident happened yesterday (June 5, 2021) where the person who was allegedly killed had been buried was spotted alive. This might mean that whoever was buried was not the thug,” he said.
He added; “I would like to ask police officers in Teso North to find out who was shot dead and who his accomplices are so that we can get to the bottom of this.”
Okaale also asked police officers in Teso to assure residents of their safety so as to know who was buried in the place of Daniel.
“We would like to hear the opinion of the security chief in Teso North about the recent happenings within the area,” Okaale said.
