Last night, a man who abused his wife lost his life after she sought refuge at another man’s residence and he pursued her.
According to a report by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) ,Fabian Omanyala assaulted his 53-year-old wife at their home in Kakemer location, Busia county, during a domestic argument that swiftly devolved into a torrent of strikes and kicks.
When the woman could no longer take the abuse, she took refuge at Robert Amukule’s homestead, but her husband followed her, baying for her blood.
Amukule, who had heard the commotion, rushed to the woman’s help, throwing a projectile from a catapult that instantly killed Omanyala.
The killer projectile which could not be immediately identified, hit the deceased on the forehead sending him sprawling on the ground.” Reads part of the DCI report.
Efforts by well wishers to rush him to nearby Korosiendet dispensary turned futile, after he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Amukule immediately went into hiding and a manhunt for him has been launched by detectives based in Teso.
