Dr. Jino Abiriga

 In a shocking turn of events, one of the alleged hitmen hired by Dr. Jino Abiriga's wife, Cherotich Betty, to end her husband's life for a sum of,000,000, has been apprehended in Bukwo district, Sebei region.


Security sources disclosed that the prime suspect, Martin Kipsang, was taken into custody on the morning of Thursday, January 11, 2024, at Rorok village, Kubulwo Parish, Amanag Sub County in Bukwo district. This arrest comes in the wake of Cherotich's apprehension, during which she reportedly divulged the identities of the actual perpetrators.

Upon interrogation, Kipsang allegedly confessed to the murder plot, revealing that they were hired by Cherotich to eliminate her husband for a promised payment of Shs1,000,000. Reportedly, she initially paid them Shs500,000 and assured them the remaining amount upon the successful completion of the mission. The identity of Kipsang's alleged partner in crime has not been disclosed by the police to safeguard ongoing investigations.

The victim, Dr. Jino Abiriga, a former Masindi Acting District Health Officer (DHO), was discovered dead in a neighbor's compound on the night of Sunday, January 7, 2024, in Masindi municipality. The grim details suggest that after attending a friend's wedding earlier in the day, the victim returned home with his wife around 10 pm. The next morning, his lifeless body, bearing multiple injuries, was found dumped 50 meters away from his residence.

Police spokesperson Fred Enanga stated that a thorough search of the victim's premises uncovered suspected bloodstains in the bedroom and beneath the marital bed. Despite Cherotich's claim that the bloodstains were from her menstrual cycle and her assertion that the victim was called away for a medical operation, police are actively investigating to establish the veracity of these claims.

A police team of forensic experts has gathered bloodstains and other samples for forensic analysis, aiming to determine whether the murder occurred within the house or at a different location, with the body later disposed of near the residence. This chilling revelation underscores the complexities of the case, shedding light on a disturbing plot involving a wife allegedly conspiring to have her husband murdered for a monetary sum.
