The incident comes barely a day after two headless bodies were found dumped in Kikoyo forest in Buhanda sub-county of the neighbouring Kitagwenda district. According to the   Resident   District Commissioner Kitagwenda district, Geoffrey Mucunguzi, bodies have not been identified yet. The bodies are also female and male.

Mucunguzi told reporters at Ibanda police station that DNA tests are going to be conducted to ascertain whether the recovered heads in Ibanda belong to the headless bodies found in Kamwenge district.

The Ibanda District Police Commander Emily Angomoku said: “The heads have been put in the mortuary at Ruhoko Health centre IV and would be sent for DNA sampling. None of their identities or age could be ascertained. We shall coordinate with our counterparts in Kitagwenda to relate two incidents.”

She added that if the identity of the slain persons are not established soon, their details and photographs would be sent to CID for publication in the media.
