Another suspected bomb blast claimed injuries of two children in Kibuku district yesterday.
The incident happened yesterday at about 3:00 pm at Kujji 1 village, Kujji parish in Tirinyi town council Kibuku District.
According to the juveniles’ mother Fatuma Kabasa, there was loud bang she heard when she was in the kitchen.
She wonders how her children picked the bomb.
Eyewitnesses said the bomb blast exploded near the burial site of Godfrey Nambiro, a suspected chicken thief who was on Tuesday lynched by a mob in Kataka zone Tirinyi sub-county Kibuku district.
Stephen Kalapa chairperson LC 1 Kujji village said he was surprised to see that such incidents happen in his area especially when the area has been peaceful.
The Bukedi North Police spokesperson ASP Immaculate Alaso confirmed the incident explaining that the juveniles were injured after they tampered with the suspected ordinance that they were playing with in the banana plantation.
The visctims, identified as Ivan Namwoyo aged 5, and Innocent Kagoro aged 6 are admitted to Tirinyi Health Centre III after sustaining injuries from the suspected Kibuku bomb blast.
Alaso added that the team of police officers visited and condoned the scene waiting for the arrival of the bomb squad.
By the time of filing this story, the bomb squad had not yet arrived as residents had started fleeing to Kibuku and Pallisa towns in fear.
