The Criminal Investigations Directorate – CID has arrested four people suspected to have orchestrated the killing of Chinese national, Fan Xiping in Kampala about five days ago.

Xiping was beaten to death by unidentified people who reportedly included three men and a woman at his residence in Mbuya II zone, Nakawa Division, in Kampala.

Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, identified three of the arrested suspects as Joshua Nsereko (22), Emmanuel Adama (25) and Dan Ngobi Dan (21).

Owoyesigyire said four suspects have been arrested from Jinja where they had gone into hiding. He added that the suspects have since confessed to killing Xiping.

“We also recovered exhibits like mobile phones of the deceased from them. Efforts are underway to arrest the remaining suspect one Shamim who is still at large. We want to commend the task teams who participated in this operation,” said Owoyesigyire.

Xiping’s death was brought to police’s attention on Friday morning by his colleague, Zhang Chunmu. Zhang in his statement recorded at Jinja Road Police Station said Fan was killed by three men and a woman who raided their home in Mbuya II zone at around 2 a.m.

Police detectives said the thugs allegedly broke into the house, tied Xiping with ropes, beat him while demanding that he reveals where he had put some items. Zhang, who in his statement said he had visited Fan and allocated a room where to sleep was the only witness of the incident.

Owoyesigyire said Zhang explained to police that he was also beaten and locked in his room by the attackers but he managed to clearly see the faces of some of the thugs whom he can identify if paraded before him.

Zhang added that he used his teeth to untie the rope to free himself and later rushed to the police where he opened a case. Owoyesigyire said the state in which the house was found, it pointed out that the thugs came looking for particular items which are yet to be established.

The Chinese Embassy in Kampala Police was alerted about Xiping death. A similar incident happened two years ago, when another Chinese national, Yei Su, 50, was shot dead in Mukono town.

She was a cashier in one of the Chinese owned Nile Steel and Plastics Ltd. A joint security team launched a hunt for the suspects who were been captured on Closed Circuit Television -CCTV cameras.
