The former minister shocked the people of Lango when he picked nomination forms for the newly created Otuke East Constituency member of parliament under independent ticket after declaring that he will not be seeking to hold any elective position.
He will be facing Hon. Fr. Jacinto Ogwal, contesting under the UPC Ticket and Hon. Julius Acon Bua, the incumbent under National Resistance Movement- NRM Party.
Solomon Ongom says Okullo returned home normally at around 7:30pm on Friday evening and had support with his family before retiring to his room at 10:30pm. He however, says that they were shocked to find his lifeless body lying in a pool of blood this morning.
