A boda boda operator was killed and his motorbike stolen by thugs in Buyofu village, Nambale sub county, Busia County. The rider, who hails from the area, was attacked by the thugs as he was leaving a funeral he had attended in the neighborhood.
His lifeless body was found Saturday morning lying by the road side with severe injuries on the head caused by a sharp object presumed to be a panga and his motorbike missing.
Nambale police officers removed the body to Busia County hospital mortuary as they launched investigations to unmask the thugs. Cases of attacks on boda boda operators have been on the decline in Busia County after police officers started working together with the operators in cubbing the vices which led to deaths of hundreds of boda boda operators in the recent past.
