Kidnappers kill 6-year-old boy after his parents failed to pay ransom



A 6-year-old boy has been found dead four days after he was abducted in Entebbe Town, Wakiso District, Uganda.



Joram Kato Were’s body was found in a decomposing state by detectives after they arrested the suspected kidnapper who led them to the crime scene on Wednesday, July 7.



"The suspects had demanded Shs4m from the parents of the child as ransom to release him. The parent, Mr Eriya Were, was able to recognize the voice of one suspect,’’ Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said.



Mr Owoyesigyire told Daily Monitor that the prime suspect ‘‘admitted to the kidnap and led the detectives to where the victim’s body was.’’



The child’s death has since led to arrests of three other people who police suspect were accomplices in the crime.



"The suspect and three others have been arrested on charges of murder,’’ Owoyesigyire added.



Acording to report, Kato disappeared on July 3, 2021- prompting his father to file a case at Kasenyi Police Station.Latest Post
