That looks like the work of serial killer(s) on the loose.

The question though why is it happening close to the doorsteps of the State House. It could be considered a national security issue.

"The remaining suspects are to be arraigned in courts of law soon."

"Soon" often means "never" where the Ugandan police is involved.
