Man Intercepted with Severed Head Records Extra-judicial Statement
A man who was intercepted at Parliament with a severed child’s head he reportedly wanted to deliver to Speaker Rebecca Kadaga, yesterday spent the greater part of the afternoon making an extra-judicial statement at Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court.
22-year old Joseph Nuwashaba, was ushered into the magistrate, Gladys Kamasanyu’s, chambers by police officers who kept pacing around the court corridors as he was recording his extra-judicial statement, in respect to murder of a child in Masaka City.
An extra-judicial statement is made by a suspect while appearing before a magistrate to narrate his/her alleged role in the commission of the said crime they are being held over.
In most cases, the extra judicial statement is made after the suspect confesses to committing the said crime.
Meanwhile reports show that the murdered girl was raped before being beheaded.
