Police at Kira Division are investigating a suspected suicide by hanging of Emmanuel Okello, 18, a senior four student of Makerere College School – MACOS and a son of Moses Opio, resident of Parliament village Kitukutwe, Kiwologoma, Kira Municipality in Wakiso District.
It is alleged that yesterday while his siblings had been taken to school, the victim locked his father inside the house and committed suicide in the compound.
Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson says that the father of the deceased alleges that Okello had informed them that he was no longer interested in going back to his former school, Makerere College.
He adds that the father to the deceased even got him a position at St. Kizito S.S Namugongo, but he wasn’t happy about the choice which could be the cause of the suicide.
The body of the deceased has been taken to the morgue for a post mortem and the police urge parents to report such cases or seek professional help whenever they detect signs of depression manifesting in their children.
