A man lost his life while pursuing his wife at their neighbour's compound in Kakemer, Busia county.

In a report by the DCI, Fabian Omanyala was killed by the said neighbour identified as Robert Amukule after his wife ran to him for help.

It is said that before the incident, they were involved in a domestic tiff which quickly escalated and Fabian's wife ran to their neighbour's homestead but he still followed her.

"What started as a domestic squabble quickly degenerated into a torrent of blows and kicks from Fabian Omanyala, as he assaulted his 53-year-old wife at their home in Kakemer location, Busia county," part of the statement by the DCI read.

The neighbour quickly came to her rescue where he is alleged to have launched a projectile from a catapult that hit Omanyala on his forehead leaving him dead on the spot.

"Amukule, who had heard the ensuing commotion quickly came to the aid of the woman by launching a projectile from a catapult, that killed Omanyala on the spot," the post further read.

Efforts to save Omanyala's life were futile as he was pronounced dead on arrival at a nearby health facility.

Amukule immediately took off and remains at large as officers launch a manhunt.
