A second suspect in the gruesome murder of Masindi district health officer, Dr.Jino Abiriga has been arrested by police to aid in investigations.

Martin Kipsanga  was arrested from Bukwo district and was on Friday taken for scene reconstruction in Kijura North in Masindi district.

Amidst police and army protection, Kipsanga was taken to various scenes in a bid to reconstruct them as the procedure for detectives to piece together the puzzle of the district health boss’ murder.

Upon learning that the suspect was to be taken for scene reconstruction, locals in Masinidi gathered at Masindi Central Police Station by 11am in anticipation that police would allow them have a look at him.

The numbers kept growing until 2pm when the  police and army were forced to  disperse the crowd before  later driving him to the scene.

He was later returned to police, amid tight security.

This brings the number of suspects arrested over the murder of the Masindi district health officer to two after his wife, Betty Cherotich was also apprehended earlier this week.

Dr  Jino Abiriga was  laid to rest at his ancestral home in Maracha District.
