Police are conducting an investigation into the enigmatic death of 35-year-old Superintendent of Police (SP) Robinus Nuwagaba, the regional logistical officer for Busoga North, which happened Friday morning about 4 a.m.

The incident happened in the deceased’s neighborhood, Industrial Area Village, Mandwa Ward, Kamuli Municipality.

According to ASP Michael Kasadha, the spokesperson for the Busoga North Police, a Death Enquiry File (DEF 006/2023) has been launched at Kamuli Central Police Station, and detectives have examined the spot and found “exhibits of evidential value.”

Mr. Kasadha urged restraint and discouraged conjecture, saying, “The body has been transported to Mulago National Referrals Hospital mortuary for an autopsy pending further investigations.”

However, preliminary investigations indicate that the deceased suffered a head injury on Tuesday after falling in the restroom.

A colleague named SP Francis Kintu and a friend whose identity has not yet been determined took him to a health facility after he allegedly began complaining of headaches on Thursday evening.

This unnamed buddy is said to have called SP Kintu on Thursday to let him know that SP Nuwagaba was shaking and that his condition had gotten worse.

According to reports, SP Kintu alerted SP David Lwanga, a fellow officer, who took the officer to the hospital but he passed away as he was being carried out of the house.
