Opposition’s Dr. Kiiza Besigye has decried the manner in the state security is being managed.
Speaking after the shocking murder of Arua Municipality Member of Parliament Ibrahim Abiriga, Besigye warned that Security systems are clearly dysfunctional and a new start is needed.
Abiriga was shot dead yesterday evening at around 6:30pm, by gunmen moving on two motorcycles, near Energy fuel station Kawanda as he approached his home.
Eye witnesses say that the gunmen first shot in the air which forced locals in the surrounding area to take cover. They shot Abiriga’s car tyres and the gunmen on one of the motorcycles moved in front of Abiriga’s car while the other followed from back. The gunman in front shot Abiriga in the head and also shot his bodygourd and after disappeared.
Rest In Peace Col. Ibrahim Abiriga!
