Police Provide Update on Fatal Shooting of Eng. Daniel Bbosa Lwomwa: Assailants Apprehended, Investigation Underway.

The Police Spokesperson SCP Enanga Fred addressed the media on the tragic incident that occurred on February 25, 2024, at approximately 6:00 PM, involving the murder of Eng. Daniel Bbosa Lwomwa, a 72-year-old individual who was the proprietor of TRANSA Electrical Company Limited and Head of the Ndiga Clan in Buganda. Eng. Bbosa was fatally shot by three assailants riding on a motorcycle armed with an AK-47 rifle.

The assailants, riding on a motorcycle with a disguised registration number, ambushed Eng. Bbosa as he approached the junction to his home in Kikandwa zone, Lungujja Parish, Lubaga division. They fired three fatal shots at close range, instantly killing Eng. Bbosa while he was seated in his Land Cruiser with his wife and housemaid. Fortunately, his wife and the housemaid escaped with no major injuries.

Following the shooting, a courageous bodaboda rider pursued the assailants, causing them to crash at Bulange – Mengo. An angry mob quickly formed and apprehended two of the assailants, resulting in the death of one, Serunkuma Enock, and the serious injury of the other, later identified as Lujja Noah.

While investigations are ongoing, the motive behind the attack remains unclear. The police are reviewing CCTV footage from both public and private sources in the area and have sent the firearm used in the murder to ballistic experts for analysis.

The police express gratitude to the community, especially the bodaboda movement, for their vigilance in pursuing the assailants. However, they caution against acts of mob justice, as it can hinder investigations. The injured suspect is currently under close guard at Mulago National Referral Hospital, and the police expect to gather more information from him once he regains full consciousness.

As the CID Homicide team continues its investigation, the police reassure the public that they are committed to identifying and apprehending all those responsible for the violent attack and murder. They extend their deepest sympathies to the Kabaka of Buganda, Eng. Bbosa’s family, the Ndiga Clan, and the residents of Lubaga – Lungujja where the incident occurred.
