Yosi Okello captured in Lira, Ugandaon January 11, 2011 in Serial Killers by Brian Combs
Yosi Okello has been terrorizing the Ugandan region of Lira for ten years. He has been accused of killing twelve people. It all started over a land dispute.
When the magistrate’s court in Lira ruled against Okello in a property dispute in late 2000, he began killing the family with which he had been arguing. A least six times, Okello and accomplices attacked and shot dead members of the family.
Okello was arrested a few days before Christmas last year. Police were led to him by a tip that he was hiding in the neighboring Soroti district.
