Another unidentified motorcyclist was also found dead around 2:30 pm on Tuesday in the forest at Katuugo town council. David Ssemayobe, the LC 1 Chairman of Katuugo village, says that a group of herdsmen grazing cattle found the body.

Ssemayobe says that they suspect the deceased was a motorcyclist because they found an empty toolbox and user manual for motorcycles at the scene. Isah Ssemwogerere, the Savannah Region Police Spokesperson, says that police are yet to identify the second victim because they didn’t find any identification document on his body.
Ssemwogerere says that the deceased is believed to have been stabbed in the neck before he was killed and his motorcycle robbed. At least 23 robbery cases and 31 homicide cases were reported in Nakasongola in 2020, according to the Police Annual Crime Report.
