Kalongo: Man Sets Brother’s Hut Ablaze
A Primary School Teacher identified as John Ojara and a resident of Kalongo Town Council in Agago District has been arrested by police on suspicion torching his brother’s grass-thatched hut.
The incident occurred last Saturday morning.
According to unconfirmed reports, Ojara got angry with his brother identified as Joe Okidi over an unspecified amount of cash after the latter sold bricks belonging to the former but refused to hand over the money.
Ojara reportedly bought petrol, mixed it with cow dung, threw it on Okidi’s roof before setting it on fire.
The suspect was later arrested by the local council authorities as he tries to escape from the scene of crime before being handed over to police at Kalongo Police Station for questioning in relation to the arson attack.
By press time, he was still being held at Kalongo Police Station.
