Police are investigating the death of Richardson Tabu, a former secretary of the Independent Electoral Commission (EC), in Gulu City.
On January 8th, Tabu, 33yrs, left his home in Opwoyomal Village, Laroo Division in Gulu City, and went to his work place at Senior Quarters in Gulu.
However, at 6pm, Tabu reportedly left office to look for food but never returned and his family reported a case of a missing person to police the following day.
Sources told our reporter that Tabu could have been kidnapped by unknown assailants before he was killed.
Amid several announcements of a missing person, on January 15th, Tabu’s body was found at Laroo Forest, Gulu East City.
The deceased’s colleague, Ronald Agaba said on the fateful day, Tabu had worked all day without food but he had planned to get his lunch break at 6pm.
Agaba said the deceased had just returned from EC headquarters for an induction for the current position as secretary of electoral commission.
Aswa regional police spokesperson Jimmy Patrick Okema said Tabu’s body had no sign of strangling.
He said Tubu could have been forced to take poison adding that police revealed some information which would aid their investigation.
