According to the eye witness, Mwebe, commonly known as Pastor Ericka who is also a relative to the deceased, a resident of Butiaba Wantebo village identified the deceased as one Nassan son to Pastor Wilson Tumwine of Butiaba Boma village in Butiaba subcounty Buliisa District.


Mwebe explains that the incident happened today at around 11:00am in the morning when four children had gone to fetch water for domestic use for their family and the crocodile ended up catching one person among four children.

It is said that most of the crocodiles are escaping in the flood water.

Residents and other local leaders are under way searching for the body since it had ran with the body in the deep water.

By press time it was hardly to get comment both from Deo the Chairperson LCI Boma village and the Uganda Wild Life Authority since they could not pickup the phone calls for several times.
