The police have announced a hefty bounty on the killers of Sarah Magara who had been missing for over two weeks before her body was discovered on Tuesday morning.
Magara, 28, an administrator at a family business owned by her dad, John Magara in Hoima was kidnapped by unknown people on her way home in Lungujja, Lubaga Division at around 9pm.
The kidnappers consequently demanded a Shs3 billion ransom from her family in exchange for her life.
However, on Tuesday morning, the Magara’s body was discovered dumped 100 metres from the Kampala- Entebbe Express highway at Kitiko which is between Kigo and Kajjansi in Wakiso district.
Addressing journalists at the police headquarters in Naguru, the police director in charge of Oil and Gas Abas Byakagaba, announced that one hundred million shillings will be paid to anyone with information leading to the arrest of the killers.
“We have a recording and whoever can clearly recognise the voice of the person speaking and leads us to the arrest of the killers will be rewarded,” AIGP Byakagaba who has been chosen to lead the team investigating the matter told journalists.
In the audio played before journalists, a male voice was heard directing someone to various places including Namasuba and others along Entebbe road to get the deceased’s body.
Byakagaba said police has put in place toll free numbers that will be manned 24/7 for any information leading to the arrest of the killers.
“We shall try to follow the leads to see that the suspects are arrested and are arraigned before courts of law.”
A number of people have in the past gone missing but have been rescued by the police flying squad whereas many others have been found dead by the kidnappers.
