Kampala, (UG):- Police on Monday offered a Shs10 million cash reward to anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of Luggya Bbosa Tabula, a key suspect in the murder of businessman and Buganda’s Ndiga (Sheep) clan head, Eng Daniel Bbosa Lwomwa.

Eng Bbosa, who was also the Director of Transa Electrical was shot dead on February 25 while driving back home with his wife and maid at Lungujja Parish at around 6 pm.

While displaying the images and identity of Luggya before the press, Uganda Police spokesperson SCP Fred Enanga said Luggya Bbosa, who is also a member of the Ndiga clan is suspected to be hiding in the islands after evading an arrest over the weekend and efforts are underway to have him apprehended and arraigned before the courts of law.

“The Directorate of CID appeals to whoever has information which may lead to the arrest and prosecution of Lujja Bbosa Tabula, aged 38, whose photograph has been shared, for his alleged role in the violent murder by shooting of Eng. Daniel Bbosa; a former “NDIGA” Clan Leader to pass in confidence to the nearest police station or ring the telephone contact number of CID Headquarters on 0741-111-333,” Mr Enanga stated.

“A substantial cash reward of Shs10 million awaits any member of the public who avails us credible information that can lead to his arrest,” added Enanga.

Luggya, according to preliminary investigations, is the person who reportedly led the case files in the Buganda Traditional Court locally known as Kooti ya Kisekwa on a leadership dispute in the Ndiga Clan which was ruled in 2022 in favour of the complainants.

The court would later nullify the leadership of Daniel Bbosa as the head of the Ndiga Clan after evidence presented proved that he was not the rightful holder of the position. Eng Bbosa however refused to hand over the office until he was gunned down by the assailants near his residence at Lungujja in Rubaga division last week on Sunday.

Mr Enanga explained that according to preliminary investigations conducted by the Crime Intelligence, Criminal Investigations Department and Kampala Metropolitan Police, it had been discovered that Tabula, a resident of Kabango village in Mpigi district masterminded the killing by outsourcing the killer guns and mobilizing assassins.

Currently, Enanga disclosed that police have so far arrested and are holding in custody seven suspects including one of the suspected killers Noah Luggya and Milly Naluwemba, a clerk at Kisekwa Cour, while others were still on the run.

Noah Luggya, who survived a mob action with injuries, was with two others, including Luggya Bbbosa (the prime suspect) and Enoch Sserunkuma (now deceased) when they attacked Daniel Bbosa, the head of the Endiga (sheep) clan, as he was driving home.

“We would like to inform the public that the Joint Crime Intelligence/CID task teams, in coordination with the KMP territorial team, have in custody seven suspects, including the hospitalized Lujja Noah, under guard, for being part of the suspects, behind the violent murder by shooting of businessman and clan leader Eng. Daniel Bbosa on 25.02.2024, at around 6 pm, in Lungujja Parish, as he was heading to his home in Kikandwa zone,” he said.

Mr Enanga however warned that those to be found harbouring Tabula will be held accountable.
“We would like to warn, anybody who will be found harboring the wanted suspect by concealing his arrest, with the intention of preventing his discovery or arrest, that they will be arrested and charged with harboring a criminal,” he stated.

Murders, especially those involving shootings, are on the increase, with 4,366 people killed in 2023, a five percent increase in comparison to 2022. Of the 4,366 people killed last year, 330 were shot dead.
