Buganda Road Chief Magistrates Court on Friday sent to Luzira prison on remand nine people for participating in the kidnap and murder of Suzan Magara.

Prosecution contends that the accused persons and others still at large on February 7, 2018 kidnapped Magara, a cashier with Bwendero Dairy Farm (BDF), with intent to procure a ransom or benefit from her liberation from the danger of being murdered.
It further stated that the accused and others still at large, on February 27 at Kigo in Wakiso district, murdered Magara.
The suspects were remanded till June 1 when they will be committed to the High Court.
