The territorial Police in Entebbe are investigating a murder by stabbing that occurred yesterday (24th August) 7pm at Nakawuka Zone B, Kajjansi Town Council when a 13-year-old girl stabbed Sadiq Matovu, who was 15 years old.
Shortly after the incident, the girl reported to police and she was arrested, according to Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Public Relations Officer.
The victim was rushed to hospital for treatment, but died on the way. More details indicate that the deceased sustained injuries on the left side of the chest. The body was later conveyed to the city mortuary at Mulago for a post mortem.
The police have since established after inquiries that while the suspect was at her mother’s workplace in Nakawuka, Faith Namawejje, the deceased with 14 other boys started assaulting her and in self-defense allegedly picked a knife and stabbed Sadiq in the chest.
Owoyesigyire revealed that the killer weapon has been recovered and exhibited. The file is being processed and will be forwarded to the office of Director of Public Prosecutions for further investigation.
