Lira, Dec. 18, 2022: A Lira top priest has hit out at residents of Lango sub-region for consulting witch doctors for solving their misunderstanding.

Rev. Father Leo Ogwang attached to Uganda Martyrs’ Cathedral in Lira City said this while speaking during the burial of Agog Richard.

Agog was buried at Camp David Cell, Omito Ward in Lira City West division.

He (Leo) told the mourners that people are fighting over the differences, citing wrangles between land boundaries.

The man of God was pointing at himself as he spoke. He is a victim and a survivor of a wrangle.  His leg was injured and a metal has been planted on it.

Agong was the son of Eyen Emmanuel and Mary Eyen. He was born in 1974 and died in 2022.

He died on Saturday after succumbing to cardiac arrest. Until his death, he was a teacher of Ogor SS in Otuke district.
