Kampala Metropolitan police has kicked off investigations into circumstances under which a Makerere University student was beaten to death.

According to Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson, the deceased has been identified as Emmanuel Tegu, a third-year student at the Faculty of Veterinary.

“Unfortunately, the victim has passed on today at 3am before he could record a statement to give us his last moments. We are yet to find out the reason why he was moving at night at that time, but a murder offence is being vigorously investigated,” Onyango stated.

He explained that at around 11pm, police received a strange call that there was a mob beating up a suspected thief near Lumumba Hall in Makerere University.

He said that their men swung into action and found unidentified person lying on the ground unconscious with several injuries.

He explained that the police patrol arrived and he was taken to Mulago hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Onyango denied allegations that the deceased was beaten to death by LDU personals with the help of policemen and branded.

“No single LDU personal is deployed at Makerere University. The security of the university is being managed by police and private security firms,” he said.

Onyango said that as police, they condemn mob justice and any person found guilty of participating in this criminal activity will be arrested and prosecuted.
