NEBBI. The state prosecutor Nebbi chief magistrate court Mr Robert Mugerwa was on Wednesday afternoon found dead in his house at River cell in Nebbi municipality.

According to the resident state attorney, Ms Jackline Bako, their colleagues’ body was found on a chair in the sitting room yesterday afternoon.

“It is so unfortunate that we have lost our colleague who has been hardworking and has accomplished a lot within the short period he has been in Nebbi”, Bako said.

She said late Mugerwa was transferred from Arua in August 2019 and within the 7months, he exhibited commitment and hard work.

She said it was last week that the late had travelled to Kampala for an official duty and he had just returned on Wednesday morning and when they tried to call on his phone to confirm whether he was back, they could not get a response, only to get information that he is dead.

Mr Goggy Ongeira, the landlord said he only saw the deceased on Wednesday morning when he had returned from Kampala the previous night and he was preparing himself to get to work.

“Later he entered his house but did not come out and when we saw his door open for some time, we tried to knock but there was no response as he was seen seated in a chair helpless which prompted neighbours to call the police who immediately responded with the medical team but only to find him dead”, Ongeira narrated

The officer in charge of criminal investigations at Nebbi central police station Mr Nicholas Natajja said the body of the deceased was later taken to Arua for post-mortem to ascertain the possible cause of his death.
