Constable Takes His Own Life After Losing UGX 800,000 in Betting

Shadiq Hussein Baguma, a police Constable has ended his life in Namanve police barracks, Kampala after losing to sports betting 800,000 Shillings that was placed under his care.

A civilian entrusted Baguma with the money for fear that he could be attacked since it was late.

However, Buguma decided to take the money for betting with the hope that he could make spontaneous profits before the owner picked it up the following day.

Unfortunately, Baguma lost his bet and all the money he had been entrusted with.

Detectives from Seeta say Baguma contacted his peers including relatives to help him replace the money in vain.

After failing to get help, Baguma waited for night hours and quietly entered his single room in the Namanve police barracks.

Five days later, neighbors in the barracks noticed a strange stench emerging from Baguma’s house. Police officers broke the door and found Baguma hanging dead.

Luke Owoyesigyire, the deputy Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson said Seeta police station was notified and dispatched detectives who documented the scene.
