Man gunned down trying to behead own son

KAMPALA- Kira Road Police Division has mounted investigations to ascertain circumstances under which a man tried to cut off his son’s head before security operatives gunned him down.

Luke Owoyesigyire the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police mouthpiece identified the deceased as Sulaiman Male a craftsman resident of Kisasi in Kawempe division, who tried to cutoff his son’s head in Kyebando last evening. 

It’s alleged that Suleiman Male picked his son Isamu Male 5, from home to Kisalosalo Kyebando. Upon reaching Kyebando, he forcefully gained access to the house of a friend Ismail Ssesanga where he picked a machete, forcing all occupants of the house to flee but they quickly reported at the nearby police post.

Sources at Kyebando post say that, the officers, swung into action and found Male had locked himself inside the house with his son, all efforts of asking him to open the door and releasing the child were in vain. 

The officers forcefully gained access into the room he had locked himself in and found him holding the child’s head down with one hand and another hand raised up with a machete ready to cut.

Owoyesigyire says the officers tried to shoot to disable him but unfortunately, he died on the spot. However the five-year-old child was saved.  The deceased’s body was taken to City mortuary for postmortem.

“We have opened up inquiries into Male’s intentions and shooting as well, all statements needed from the locals at the scene and his relatives have been taken by Kira road detectives,” said Owoyesigyire.“ KMP PRO said.
