Prominent Businessman Shoots Son Dead

 In a shocking turn of events, renowned Ugandan businessman Haji Joe Ogwang has been apprehended following the fatal shooting of his son, Aaron Okello, on Tuesday, November 21. The incident, which has sent shockwaves through the community, reportedly stemmed from a heated confrontation over financial matters.

According to a report by the Daily Monitor, the altercation between Ogwang and his son escalated when Okello demanded money from his father. The situation quickly spiraled out of control, leading to a physical struggle between the two family members. In a tragic twist, Okello sustained injuries when, during the scuffle, Ogwang allegedly discharged a firearm.

Despite immediate efforts to save him, Okello was rushed to the hospital and tragically pronounced dead upon arrival. The 57-year-old businessman, now accused of the unthinkable act, subsequently surrendered to the authorities.

Police spokesperson Patrick Jimmy Okema provided a statement on the ongoing investigation, revealing, “The killer gun has been recov
ered, with five rounds of ammunition and exhibited. We are yet to ascertain whether the suspect acquired the pistol legally or not as further investigations continue.” The incident raises questions about the legal possession of the firearm and adds another layer of complexity to the already devastating turn of events.

The local community is grappling with shock and disbelief as the news reverberates throughout Lira City. Authorities are conducting a thorough investigation to uncover the circumstances leading up to the tragic shooting. The case has drawn attention not only to the personal tragedy within the Ogwang family but also to broader issues surrounding gun ownership and domestic disputes.
