Arua land wrangle leaves one hospitalised

A land wrangle at Ochanya village, Ofaaka sub-county, Arua district, has left the wife of one of the warring parties hospitalized after she was beaten in a suspected revenge mission.

Amos Draptuaman’s wife is currently hospitalised at Nebbi Hospital, said Robin Lanaku, a resident of Ochanya. She was allegedly beaten by Roger Jakuma from Ochanya.

The warring parties had petitioned a local court at Ofaaka sub-county, but were asked to solve the matter at village level.

However, according to Lanaku, before the conflict was resolved, Draptuaman’s wife was beaten after an argument. After investigations, the LC1 court ruled that the land belonged to Draptuaman.
