Man Chops 11-Year-Old Nephew To Death

Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Region Police Spokesperson, revealed that, upon the arrest on Sunday evening, the suspect was found with severed body parts, including fingers and toes, in his house.
Police in Ntungamo are holding 34-year-old Nelson Akandwanaho, a resident of Kyanyanzira village in Rubaare sub-county, on suspicion of killing his 11-year-old nephew, Patrick Ariho, a pupil at Kiyombero Primary School. The local council chairperson of Kyanyanzira village, Steven Basiima, reported that Akandwanaho's wife contacted him after discovering a hand in the saucepan of meat her husband provided for cooking.

Basiima, along with others, cordoned off the suspect's house to prevent escape. Attempts to persuade Akandwanaho to open the door failed, forcing them to break in and subsequently hand him over to Omungyenyi police post.

Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Region Police Spokesperson, revealed that, upon the arrest on Sunday evening, the suspect was found with severed body parts, including fingers and toes, in his house. Kasasira noted that Akandwanaho, alleged to be mentally ill, took the nephew from his grandparent's home, where the victim was staying while they attended church. 

Obed Mugume, the defense secretary of Kyanyanzira village, mentioned that other body parts, such as the abdomen, legs, and arms, were discovered in the suspect's toilet and the grandparents' latrine. Kasasira confirmed that the suspect has been transferred to Ntungamo Central police station while investigations are ongoing.
