There is tension at Masaka Central Police Station where a yet to be identified prisoner died under mysterious circumstances.
The inmate according to police sources privy had a day prior complained about a fully demanding health complication but the officers on duty rubbished it off saying he was just in ‘drama’. Attempts by other inmates to convince police officers to attend to the sickly inmate turned futile as none was ready to listen.
By Wednesday morning, the prisoner had breathed his last. Police have already deployed heavily at the station awaiting the district attorney to arrive and study the condition. Even other inmates are still within the same cell with the deceased.
Masaka DPC has declined to speak to the media about the matter as he fears for his office.
It should be recalled that even in 2020, a one Walugembe a Boda Boda rider self immolated at the same Masaka CPS after one of the police officers solicited for a bribe to return his impounded motorcycle.
