Security Breach at State Lodge: Investigation Underway as Woman Fatally Injured

This vehicle was involved in the incident

In a dramatic turn of events, authorities have launched an investigation into a security breach at the State Lodge in Nakasero, which tragically resulted in the death of a woman. The incident unfolded when a vehicle, driven by Shafic Bwanika, alias Shafic Mayanja, attempted to forcefully enter the premises.

According to sources, the vehicle, traveling at alarming speed, disregarded warnings from checkpoint officers and continued its reckless approach towards the State Lodge entrance. In response, security personnel opened fire, inadvertently injuring a female occupant identified as Mercy Evelyn Aketch Adiko, 23, who later succumbed to her injuries.

The genesis of the incident traces back to a complex web of deceit, involving promises of employment abroad and substantial financial transactions. Allegedly, Bwanika, posing as a State House employee, had solicited funds totaling Shs18 million from Joseph Owor, under the guise of facilitating a job opportunity in Canada.

However, suspicions arose when Bwanika began evading Owor, prompting police intervention. A confrontation ensued at Arua Park, leading to Bwanika’s reckless dash towards the State Lodge, where he attempted to breach security barriers.

Despite warnings and intervention attempts by soldiers, the vehicle persisted, resulting in a confrontation that left both the suspect and the victim fatally injured. Bwanika’s apprehension near the blood bank in Nakasero marked the culmination of a tumultuous sequence of events.

Confirming the incident, Maj Jimmy Omara, the Special Forces Command public information officer, emphasized ongoing investigations to unravel the motives behind the breach. He urged the public to adhere to security protocols and cautioned against unauthorized attempts to access restricted areas.

While details remain sparse to safeguard ongoing investigations, the incident serves as a sobering reminder of the importance of vigilance and adherence to established security measures. As authorities delve deeper into the matter, the quest for justice and accountability underscores the gravity of the situation, casting a shadow over the normally tranquil corridors of Nakasero.
