Gulu City residents Wednesday woke up to the sad news of the death of Ms Harriet Aber, Gen Salim Saleh’s associate.
It happened at her home in Kasubi, Gulu City.
Police and UPDF soldiers cordoned off the area as investigations kick off.
Aber was a popular farming investor in Northern Uganda.
She has worked with Gen. Salim Saleh, the commander of the Operation Wealth Creation (OWC).
Her body was discovered in her bed in the wee hours of Wednesday by her young children.
She reportedly owned 3,400 acres in Nwoya district.
In October 2017, she appeared before the commission of inquiry into land matters for evicting tens of residents in Nwoya district, northern Uganda.
