A Special Force’s Command (SFC) officer attached to the Field Artillery Regiment in Waza Nakaseke district has been sentenced to life imprisonment for murder and 40 years for aggravated robbery.

RA /239288 Julius Ecee appeared before the Division Court Martial of 01 Special Forces Group (SFG) of the Special Forces Command (SFC) for trial over allegations of murder contrary to section 188 & 189, and aggravated robbery 285 & 286 of the Penal Code Act.

He will serve his two sentences concurrently starting Wednesday 17th April, 2024 at Luzira government prison.

During a court session held at Loro Town Council in Oyam District, the Division’s chair Lt. Moses Nabaasa ruled that the convict committed a serious crime whose sentence should deter the others from committing similar offences.

Court found that on 25th December 2023, the convict signed for a weapon SMG 56-6101219 to go for guard duty but instead traveled to Oyam District with the same weapon without authority.

The following day, the convict then used the same gun to rob 65,000 shillings from a hardware shop located in Loro Town council, subsequently shooting and injuring three people; 19- years- old Kizito Isaac Okola, 25-year- old Innocent Obwol and RA 278021 Emmanuel Okello, a solider attached to Nakasongola Air force base.  Okola later died from the hospital where he was admitted for treatment.
