A police officer has killed himself after shooting his wife dead in an incident that took place at Nsmabya police barracks early on Thursday.
Godfrey Sabiti, who was attached to the VIP Protection unit, is said to have signed for his gun explaining that he was setting out for duty. He then returned home, and shot his wife before killing himself at about 6:30am.
According to a report in Daily Monitor, Sabiti had allegedly recently found out that he was HIV positive.
“We have recovered the test results of HIV for the wife, Akol and the children except for the man. These read negative. We suspect that the man must have found himself positive and took a wrong decision. He planned it since he took all the family members for HIV test on January 24, 2017,” said Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesman, Paul Kangave.
