The police recovered a rifle registered as UG POL 8867-107157. Okii’s body was taken to Kawolo General Hospital mortuary for a postmortem examination. According to Butoto, information gathered from Okii’s close associates revealed that he was persuaded by friends to join Securex with assurances of earning around 300,000 Shillings monthly.
Despite completing two months of mandatory training and a one-month probation period, he received a gross pay of only 180,000 Shillings the prior week, expressing dissatisfaction to his superiors. They assured him of potential salary increments in the future. Butoto added that realizing it would take nearly a year to clear his one-million-shilling debt and facing difficulties in meeting his daily needs, Okii fell into despair, leading to his tragic decision.
Efforts to reach Securex’s Zonal Manager, James Ochom, were unsuccessful as multiple calls went unanswered. Okii’s colleague, and friend from the same duty station, Bony Agal, said that the deceased confided in him about the immense stress caused by his inability to sustain himself with the meager salary. Agal noted that Okii took his life on the staircases leading to Hoopoe’s administrative offices, shortly after a conversation that lasted only about 10 minutes.
