The cause of his death is being investigated by police, but it reportedly arose out of a possible robbery gone wrong in which the man only identified Henry Nsamba, 27, was on a mission to rob Spice Diana.
Nsamba was caught climbing Diana’s perimeter fence at 2:00 am on June 30th, last month. He had already entered the compound.
But before he could make off with anything, the security guard for Spice Diana apprehended him and threw him outside the compound.
However, when Nsamba was thrown out of the compound, he was immediately attacked by the locals who assailed bricks and other weapons which caused him grievous bodily harm.
The police arrived on the spot after the locals had beaten Nsamba to death, before his body taken to Mulago Hospital.
The Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed the incident saying “investigations are underway to establish the cause of death of the suspected robber and the people who carried out mob justice causing his demise.”
Owoyesigire decried any citizens taking the law into their own hands and said that the police will quickly establish the circumstances under which Nsamba died and how he managed to scale the singer’s wall in order to attempt to rob her.
The incident occurred at Ngobe zone, Bunamwaya, Wakiso district, where Spice Diana lives.
Spice Diana is said to be distressed over the incident and has not offered any information regarding the incident.
