6-year-old Boy Murdered By Kidnappers After Family Failed To Pay Ransom

Decomposing body of a six-year-old boy has been found four days after he was kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

The body of the boy identified as Joram Kato was found in Entebbe Town, Wakiso District, Uganda.

It was gathered that the body was found by detectives after they arrested the suspected kidnapper who led them to the crime scene.

the arrest was confirmed in a statement released on Wednesday, July 7 by the Kampala metropolitan police deputy spokesman, Luke Owoyesigyire.

He said:

“The suspects had demanded Shs4m from the parents of the child as ransom to release him. The parent, Mr Eriya Were, was able to recognize the voice of one suspect.”

‘‘the suspect admitted to the kidnap and led the detectives to where the victim’s body was.’’

The child’s death has since led to arrests of three other people who police suspect were accomplices in the crime.

“The suspect and three others have been arrested on charges of murder.’

Acording to report, Kato disappeared on July 3, 2021- prompting his father to file a case at Kasenyi Police Station.

On July 5, he (Were’s dad) received a call from a kidnapper demanding for Shs4m, which he didn’t have.

The suspects threatened to kill the child if he either failed to send the money or informed the police about the case.

Kato’s father, Mr Were tipped police about the person he ’strongly’ suspected to have made a call to him- leading to the arrests.
