Investigations have been kicked off by Uganda Police into circumstances under which a man was killed for failing to pay shs1000 for a rolex.
This happened in Gulu East division in Gulu city yesterday as this has been confirmed by police spokesperson, Fred Enanga.
“It happened as one of the locals commonly known as Odong Nyige, a resident of Karom cell, Pece-Laroo Division in Gulu city ordered for a rolex of shs1000 from Emmy’s chapatti point. After eating the rolex, he refused to pay which resulted into a fight,” he said.
Enanga further that said that after failing to pay shs. 1000, the operator of the chapatti stall, identified as Emmy who had a knife stabbed Odong several times killing him instantly.
Emmy, who is the main suspect has since fled the scene after committing the crime and efforts to look for him have kicked off already.
“The man hunt for him has kicked off. You can’t just stab and kill someone like that because of shs1000. These are flimsy disagreements which cannot cost the life of another person.” –Enanga concluded.
A rolex is a popular egg roll that has become the staple food for many young people in the country as it can be afforded by most of the youths.
