An unknown assailant has shot dead a private security guard belonging to SGA Security in Wobulenzi, Luwero district.
The assailant shot 20-year-old Leone Odongo several times at about 12.30 pm today Wednesday at Advance Smart Microfinance in Modern Zone in Wobulenzi town. He also made off with his gun.
Moses Ssebalamu, the LC III chairperson of Wobulenzi, says that the assailant fled towards Wampamba zone before disappearing into the bushes.
Uganda People’s Defense Force soldiers have since teamed up with the police to hunt the attacker. Police have also cordoned off the scene to gather evidence of the attack.
Several security people have been gunned down in a similar manner and their guns stolen in recent months. However, this is the first attack that has taken place in broad daylight.
