The police in Mukono are searching for unknown assailants who killed a 6-year-old child in what is suspected to be a ritual sacrifice.

Praise Lugoloobi Nakavubu went missing on Thursday 12th January three days after she was enrolled at Katente Church of Uganda primary school.

According to Joseph Zziwa the Head of Crime Investigations at Mukono Police Division Police, the body was recovered from a thick bush near the garden of some residents in Nakisunga sub-county on Sunday still in her school uniform and with a big cut on the neck and head. 

Zziwa explains that the body was wrapped in a black polythene bag raising suspicion that she could have been killed in a ritual murder since her tongue and private parts were missing.

The deceased’s mother, Nawume Namata says that she opened a case at Nakisunga police station and made adverts via different media platforms after tracing her daughter in vain.  

Investigations into the matter are still ongoing, however, Zziwa has cautioned parents against sending their children to and from school unaccompanied.
