The Special Investigations Division-SID has dropped charges against three lookalike suspects who were arrested in connection to the murder of a Boda boda rider at Kakyeka, Mengo, Rubaga Division, in Kampala.

The trio was picked up on suspicion that they could have been behind the murder of Derrick Muwonge Mulindwa on June 30th, 2019. Mulindwa was strangled to death two passengers he had dropped off.

The entire scene was caught by a CCTV camera on a nearby building. The footage went viral on social media when it was released to the public.

As a result, police picked up three lookalike suspects on suspicion that they could have been behind Mulindwa’s murders.

However, Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, says SID has dropped charges against trio since the prime suspect, John Bosco Mugisha aka Mukiga was picked up on Wednesday. 

He says investigators at SID have since delinked the trio from the crime, saying they will be released since they have nothing against them.

The Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, Patrick Onyango, confirmed Mugisha’s arrest in a statement issued on Wednesday. 

He explained that Mugisha was picked up from his hideout in Nsiike I, Ndeeba, Rubaga Division, in Kampala on Tuesday night following a tip off.

Upon arrest, Mugisha reportedly disclosed that he and his friend, Young Mulo (not the music artist) were the ones who strangled Mulindwa. 

Asked on what basis they picked up the lookalike suspects, Enanga said their arrest was public led. 

Enanga explained that when the video went viral, some members of the public volunteered information, which led to the arrest of the trio.
