NEWS- The Police in Kitgum District have in detention a woman for allegedly dumping her eight months old twin boys in a fast-flowing stream after a family quarrel.
Wilfred Nyeko, the Labongo Amida Sub County LC 3 identified the suspect as Lily Oyella, a resident of Bipong village in Oryang Parish in Labongo Amida Sub County.
according to Nyeko, the mother of six reportedly dumped the children in Auch stream, some 500 meters away from her home about 6 pm on Saturday evening October 10th 2020 after a quarrel with her husband.
Nyeko says trouble started on Friday when the suspect waited for her husband whom she had sent with an unspecified amount of money to buy food for the family for Independence Day celebrations in vain.
He notes that the suspect’s husband identified as Kenneth Ochol instead used all the money to drink alcohol leaving his family to spend the day without food.
According to Nyeko, Ochol returned home on Saturday morning but disappeared shortly after his wife confronted him.
The suspect was picked up in the evening and locked up at Kitgum Central Police station pending investigations while her husband is on the run, according to Nyeko. He adds that one of the children who survived the incident is receiving treatment at Kitgum General Hospital while the deceased’s body is lying in the mortuary at the same hospital pending postmortem.
Police have opened up a case of murder against the suspect while Ochol is being hunted for interrogation.
