The UPDF deputy spokesperson, Col. Deo Akiiki on Monday identified the soldier as Lance Cpl Denis Awilo.
“The culprit was also gunned down in self defence and to stop his wanton action. We condemn the outrageous act of the lower commander against his subordinates. We extend our sincere condolences to those whose life have taken and grieve with the families. Joint investigations have commenced to ascertain what prompted the Junior Commissioned officer to shot at his colleagues,” Col Akiiki said in a statement.
