Fabian Omanyala, a man in Busia County has been killed by his neighbour after assaulting his wife in a domestic disagreement.
The man is said to have gotten into an altercation with the 53-year-old wife at their home in Kakemer location on Monday night.
According a report by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the woman was battered by her husband, forcing her to escape to a neighbour’s house.
The husband pursued her to the nearby home, where the neighbour, Robert Amukule, came to the woman’s refuge.
“Amukule quickly came to the aid of the woman by launching a projectile from a catapult that killed Omanyala on the spot. The killer object, which could not be immediately identified, hit the deceased on the forehead, sending him sprawling on the ground,” DCI stated.
Omanyala was rushed to a nearby dispensary where he was pronounced dead on arrival.
Detectives have launched a manhunt for the neighbour who has since gone into hiding after the incident.
