Lutasingwa. “Upon further interrogation, Lutasingwa revealed that he and Sonko
had robbed the same vehicle from Mbarara, they also revealed the place where
they had dumped the body," Twiine said.

profiling and the suspects were detained on murder and aggravated robbery.

investigations shown that the two people have also been identified as the two
suspects who murdered another people called Juliet Namusoke alias Nabutono in
Kikyusa, Luwero District on 19th august 2020 and disappeared.

was also a stepchild of the late Juliet Namusoke alias Nabutono, whom they murdered
and disappeared to unknown places," said Twine, adding that the two suspects are now facing two murder charges and aggravated robbery.
