Francis Onebe, the owner of the Price and King accounting firm, has denied ever employing a maid as police question him about the remains of a second person discovered inside a bag recovered from a septic tank last week.
Onebe’s house is located on Kaggwa Rise in Munyonyo parish, not Muyenga as previously reported. For the past nine months, the 72-year-old has been in the headlines, saying that his wife, Immaculate Mary Blessing Onebe, was kidnapped by unknown people in a Toyota Hiace, also known as a drone.
However, things changed this week when Bonny Oriokot, a security guard from Pentagon Security Limited, resurfaced at the property he was guarding prior to Immaculate’s disappearance on January 6. Pentagon Security Limited’s executive director was Immaculate.
Oriokot vanished shortly after Immaculate went gone. However, a new guard from the same business apprehended him. Oriokot was quizzed by detectives to see if he knew where Francis Onebe’s wife was and why he varnished as soon as she went missing.
Oriokot, on the other hand, surprised investigators when he said that Francis was aware of what had occurred to his wife. Francis was called to CID headquarters in Kibuli, but detectives rapidly discovered contradictions in his account.
It was decided to go to his house and open the pit latrine and septic tank. Their suspicions were confirmed when a woman’s body was discovered in the septic tank. A hefty bag had been placed on the corpse’s chest when it was discovered.
When investigators opened the heavy bag yesterday, they discovered a human head as well as various body parts such as libs, arms, and legs. Francis Onebe, who has been stationed at the Special Investigations Unit-SIU in Kireka and Jinja Road Police Station on occasion, has been tasked with identifying the likely second victim.
A detective added, “We asked him to clarify whether he had a maid, and he responded no.” “He claims he has never had a maid. He doesn’t think the woman we pulled out of the septic tank is his wife. Our suspicion is that the maid was murdered after witnessing the murder of her boss, Immaculate.”
CID spokesman Charles Twine told Uganda Radio Network-URN that they are now tasked with determining which of the two bodies was Immaculate. He goes on to say that the DNA samples taken from Immaculate’s daughter are their best hope.
“We have a difficult challenge ahead of us in determining which of these victims was Immaculate. “However, if the DNA results suggest that none of these remains belong to Immaculate, we’ll have to look for people who may have lost contact with their families to assist us in identifying these dead,” Twine explained.
Although Francis Onebe denied ever having a permanent maid, Godfrey Akena, the defense secretary of Lower Mawanga village, claimed the couple did have a maid who they frequently dispatched to his shop to buy food.
The maid was last seen a few weeks before Immaculate was reported missing, according to Akena. Oriokot was the one who bought food from Akena’s business at the time. Akena claims he never received word on whether their maid had been fired or had gone missing.
Francis Onebe visited many security prison facilities, including Kabalagala, CMI, and SIU, between January 6 and last week. He said that his wife was taken by a maid who lived next door to them.
