Updf soldier shoots Colleagues

UPDF Soldier Shoots Three Colleagues in Somalia.

Corporal Simon Agaba, a member of the Uganda People’s Defence Forces (UPDF), went on a shooting rampage on Monday and killed three of his colleagues in Mogadishu, Somalia.

Capt. George William Musinguzi, the UPDF contingent’s spokesperson in Somalia, claims that Agaba, a member of the 23rd battalion assigned to guard the Aden Adde international airport, shot and killed a colleague out of nowhere, killing anyone who tried to intervene.

Private Charles Akatwongyera, Lance Corporal Lord Charles Mangwi, and Lance Corporal Christopher Kigongo have been identified as the deceased.

The first victim was shot in the chest, the second victim was shot three times in the head for trying to see what was going on, and the third soldier was shot in the back for trying to run away.

Musinguzi addded that, after the three shootings, the entire camp was now alert and a brave officer tip-toed and disarmed the shooter who didn’t resist.

After being subdued, the suspect, according to reports, realized he had committed a crime and asked his fellow soldiers to kill him. However, the coworkers merely detained him and handed him over to the authorities for management.

They suspect the soldier has been struggling with stress disorders. Although investigations have begun to determine the true cause of his actions.
