Angulu's body was found laying in a pool of blood shortly after the gunshots. Reports indicate that after supplying wholesale grocery items using his tipper truck, reg no.

However, upon reaching his gate, armed men confronted Angulu before they shot him three times - in the head and twice in the stomach using an AK-47 rifle.
“Our team led by the DPC on information that there were gunshots in that place immediately visited the scene and found the deceased laying on the ground in a pool of blood three cartridges and one live ammunition were recovered at the scene of the crime but the motive,” Patrick Jimmy Okema, North Kyoga police spokesperson said.
He added that “the motive is still not yet clear and we appeal for support from members of the public as we join hands together to hunt for the assassins. Also, we appeal to businessmen to be very careful of their personal security.”
