The body of Suzan Magara, a 28-year-old cashier who has been missing since February 7 has been discovered Tuesday morning dumped in Kigo off the Entebbe expressway.

The body was found by residents of Kigo, who later alerted the police.

Suzan Magara, a cashier with Bwendero Dairy Farm (BDF) along Kabaka Anjagala road in Rubaga was reportedly kidnapped while driving to her home in Lungujja, Lubaga Division early this month. Her motor vehicle was found abandoned on the roadside after the kidnap.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire Confirmed the discovery but said details on the circumstances surrounding her death were still scanty.

“It is true we found her body. We shall give the details soon,” Owoyesigyire told this publication.

The Police Flying Squad have been handling the search for Suzan Magara. A source within the unit told our reporter that the family had stopped working with the police shortly after they were asked for a ransom of Shs 60 million by the kidnappers. Other family members claim the kidnappers had raised their ransom to Shs 3 billion in recent days.

“The kidnappers warned them not to bring in the police or their loved one would be killed,” says the source that preferred anonymity.
