Soldiers raided several neighbourhoods in Muyuka on Thursday morning picking up women, children and young men as they continue their search to track down the perpetrators of last Tuesday’s crime.

On Wednesday, the Governor of the South West Region, Bernard Okalia Bilai held a crisis meeting with all stakeholders as they all condemned the act. The Governor said investigations will immediately be opened to track down the perpetrators of the crime.
