According to the Deputy Spokesperson of the Kampala Metropolitan Police ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, the suspect was arrested on Sunday at around 0430hrs while officers were on motorised patrols in Kazo Lugoba Zone Kaazo Ward, Nabweru Division Wakiso District.
They found Nabasa carrying a sack on a motorcycle registration number UFG 635P.

“Nabasa hasn’t yet cooperated well with the police to help us identify the deceased and where he got the body from,” he asserts.
Owoyesigyire says investigations to identify the deceased are ongoing.
“The suspect has been detained at Kawempe Police Station on allegations of murder.
