Security Guard Arrested For Shooting Colleague Dead

Written by on July 8, 2021

A private security guard is in custody at Jinja Road Police Station in Kampala for shooting his colleague to death and fleeing with two firearms.

Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson identifies the suspect as Jimmy Ocan from Swat Security Group limited.

He is also accused of shooting his colleague Zakaria Lokong from the same security firm. Detectives at Jinja road say that Ocan opened fire around 6:20 pm on Wednesday evening at KCB Bank Industrial Area on 6th Street in Kampala killing Lokong and fled the scene with two firearms.

He, however, says that Officer in Charge the police post in Industrial Area, who responded to the gunshots, intercepted the suspect before he could get away.

It is still unclear why Ocan decided to open fire at his colleague.  The deceased’s body is lying at the city mortuary in Mulago pending postmortem. Last month, another security guard shot and injured his colleague in Wandegeya following a misunderstanding over a woman.
