He was picked up from Kakiri in Wakiso district on Wednesday and transferred to Kiboga where he wanted for murder.
Kiboga police has finally arrested a man who has been at large for the last five years for murder. The suspect is 31-year-old Hamid Tamuzzade, a resident of Bakijula village in Dwaniro Sub County in Kiboga district. He was picked up from Kakiri in Wakiso district on Wednesday and transferred to Kiboga where he is wanted for murder.
Herbert Muhangi, the Kiboga district police commander says that Hamid Tamuzzade has been on the run since 2007 when he allegedly hacked his wife Restuta Nalukwago to death. It is alleged that Tamuzzade hacked Nalukwago on September 30, 2007 at her parent's home in Bakijula village. During the brutal incident, Tamuzzade also injured his father in law Charles Ssali when he intervened to stop him from committing the crime.
He says that after committing both crimes Tamuzzade went into hiding until he was arrested on Wednesday this week. It is not yet clear why Tamuzzade murdered his wife but police investigations indicate that the couple developed a misunderstanding when Nalukwago tried to block the suspect from selling two plots of land belonging to her late husband.
Muhangi says that they are hunting for the other accomplices of Tamuzzade, who are still at large. Despite the fact that police says that Tamuzzade will be charged with murder, the suspect pleads innocence. Tamuzzade insists that there is no way he would have murdered the mother of his child and two of his late brother. Tamuzzade married Nalukwago after his brother died.
