Wakiso – Nsangi Police station is investigating the disappearance of 24-year-old woman two days to her marriage ceremony.
Bushura Najjuko, a resident of Katereke Cell in Kyengera Town Council, Wakiso district reportedly went missing on Friday last week at 9:00 am while on her way to Shafuras Bride Make-up Shop in Nakivubo for henna treatment.
Najjuko was preparing for her upcoming marriage ceremony, which was scheduled for Sunday, March 12, 2023.
While at Nakivubo, she reportedly handed over her changing dresses to Kivumbi Ali, a boda-boda rider, to take home. She informed him that she would follow later but never showed up, raising concerns about her whereabouts.
“Efforts to locate Najjuko have so far been unsuccessful. The make shop owner, whom we believe was the last person seen with her confirms that they parted ways at the New Taxi Park since they were heading in different directions,” says Luke Owoyesigyire the Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesperson.
The victim was supposed to marry Faruk Mugalu, a resident of Kagoma.
“As-saalam alaikum brothers, this is a painful moment, our daughter was supposed to get married this Sunday,but she went missing on Friday and we have no knowledge of her whereabouts, we ask you to include her in your prayers,” said an uncle to Najjuko in an audio that was shared in various Muslim Whatsap groups.
Police has said investigations into the matter are ongoing, and urged anyone with information about Najjuko’s whereabouts to contact the nearest police station.
The public has been urged to help in any way possible to ensure the safe return of Najjuko Bushura to her family.
