The Territorial Police in Amuru has in custody a mother and daughter for the alleged murder of her husband and father, respectively, on February 24, 2023, around 8 p.m. at Labongo village, Pagak Parish, Amuru district.

The victim had advised her daughter, who had a conflict with her husband and returned home, against entering a new relationship with another man. This angered her daughter, who attacked and assaulted her. She was joined by her mother, Laduu Santa, a 50-year-old housewife, and they pushed the victim, Nyeko Augustine, aged 66, to the ground, where he fell and hit his head on the ground.

Fred Enanga the Uganda police police spokesperson says that the victim died, and his body was locked in the house. It was discovered the next day, on February 25, 2023, around noon, by Wokolanya Patrick, and a report was filed with the police.

Both Amony Concy, aged 28, and her mother, Laduu Santa, aged 50, were arrested and charged with murder.

Enanga adds that police strongly condemns such acts of inter-family violence and urge families to always engage the LCs, police, and respected members of the community to address their differences.
