KAMPALA: A soldier attached to Makindye Military Barracks has killed himself after shooting his lover who died on her to hospital.

Police said the two lovers had developed a conflict which could have led to the fatal Tuesday morning incident.

Below is the full statement by the police.

Luke Owoyesigyire: “The territorial police in Katwe have registered an incident of murder and suicide that occurred today, the 20th of February 2024.

According to preliminary investigations, the incident involved Corporal Andebo Collins, a military police officer attached to Makindye Military Police, and Atulinda Peroni, a civilian support staff also with the military police. The two individuals were previously in a relationship and had been residing together in Lusaka Zone, Makindye 1, Makindye Division, before experiencing a separation due to misunderstandings.

It is alleged that this morning at approximately 07:00 hours, Corporal Andebo Collins, armed with an AK-47 rifle and dressed in civilian attire, confronted Atulinda Peroni as she was boarding a motorcycle (boda boda). He opened fire on her, resulting in her sustaining a shattered arm. Subsequently, Corporal Andebo Collins turned the firearm on himself, resulting in his demise upon arrival at Mulago Hospital’s casualty ward.

Our officers at Katwe Police Station and the Military Police swiftly responded to the scene, managing to rush the victim to Nsambya Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a few minutes ago. Her body has been conveyed to City Mortuary Mulago for postmortem examination.

The team has since established that the duo had a history of relationship issues spanning approximately five years. Notably, the alleged killer’s firearm was recovered, along with 13 cartridges from the scene.

At this juncture, our inquiries are ongoing to comprehensively understand the circumstances surrounding this tragic event. Statements have been recorded from witnesses to aid in our investigation.

More details will be availed as soon as possible.
