The incident which was captured on the CCTV cameras of a nearby nursery and primary school, shows killers posed as potential clients, attacking strangling and repeatedly hitting him with a stone to the head leading to his instant death before immediately taking off with his motorcycle.

He said the suspect admitted to be the one the widely circulated CCTV video on Social media and that Young Mulo been was killed by mob after their (Mugisha and Young Mulo) other motorcycle robbery in Mityana district.

Now, in a turn of events, this website has established that the ‘dead’ young Mulo has been arrested and he is under Police custody.
According to a reliable source, it is true Young Mulo real names Ssekyema Patrick, was badly lynched by a mob in Makindye as his earlier arrested colleague Mugisha claimed to a point the mob thought was dead.
His ‘lifeless’ body was then taken Mulago hospital mortuary only for doctors to find later that he was still alive and since there was no complaint and no body following the case at that time, Police opted to leave him in hospital undergoing medication.
He would three days later after becoming conscious escape from the hospital and after Mugisha’s statement which detailed his colleague’s personal information, Police decided to go back to the hospital to trace his body, only to be told that escaped days back.
