Woman Killed by Mob in Lira Following Husband's Death
Caption not available

A scream shattered the sleepy routine of Aromo Town Council. Susan Acen, the mayor's wife, stumbled out of her home, face a mask of terror. The news spread like wildfire - Robert Odongo, the beloved mayor, was dead, his body stuffed in a sack beneath their marital bed.

Emmanuel Odongtoo, a local leader, arrived seeking a loan from the mayor. Acen's frantic denial of her husband's presence sent a shiver down his spine. Curiosity gnawed at him. A bulge under the bed, a sickening confirmation – the mayor lay lifeless. Acen vanished, suspicion clinging to her like a shroud.

A mob, fueled by grief and fury, surged through the streets. Acen, cornered, was dragged back to face a twisted form of justice. The police, overwhelmed, were a flimsy dam against the tide of rage. They wrestled Acen away, a fleeting hope for due process. But the mob was a ravenous beast, and in the chaos of the police station, they snatched their prey.

The night echoed with the sounds of a brutal reckoning. Acen, the woman shrouded in suspicion, breathed her last, another victim in this macabre dance of death. Now, two bodies lie cold, their secrets whispered on the wind. Was Acen a cunning killer or a woman trapped in a deadly web? Only time and a relentless investigation will unveil the chilling truth behind the mayor's murder.
