The Territorial Police at Katwe Division is investigating an incident of murder and suicide after a male police officer shot and killed his female lover before turning the gun on himself in at Makindye Police Barracks in Kampala.

The Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire revealed that the tragic incident occurred today morning, Tuesday, February 2024.

Owoyesigyire identified the killer officer as Corporal Andebo Collins, a military police officer attached to Makindye Military Police, and the victim as Ms Atulinda Peroni, a civilian support staff also with the military police.

According to preliminary investigations, it is alleged that the two individuals were previously in a relationship and had been residing together in Lusaka Zone, Makindye 1, Makindye Division, before experiencing a separation due to misunderstandings.

“It is alleged that this morning at approximately 07:00 hours, Corporal Andebo Collins, armed with an AK-47 rifle and dressed in civilian attire, confronted Atulinda Peroni as she was boarding a motorcycle (boda boda). He opened fire on her, resulting in her sustaining a shattered arm,” Owoyesigyire explained in a Tuesday police statement.

Later Corporal Andebo turned the firearm on himself, resulting in his demise upon arrival at Mulago Hospital’s casualty ward.

“Our officers at Katwe Police Station and the Military Police swiftly responded to the scene, managing to rush the victim to Nsambya Hospital, where she was pronounced dead a few minutes ago. Her body has been conveyed to City Mortuary Mulago for postmortem examination,” stated Owoyesigyire.

However, the alleged killer’s firearm was recovered, along with 13 cartridges from the scene as investigations into the murder incident take charge.

“At this juncture, our inquiries are ongoing to comprehensively understand the circumstances surrounding this tragic event. Statements have been recorded from witnesses to aid in our investigation,” Owoyesigyire said.
