The MP was all set to travel to Arua on Saturday to discuss highlights of the State of the Nation address with the locals there, but this has not been possible.

"The scene has been cordoned off. It is true its very tragic, I confim the death of hon Ibrahim Abiriga, we are yet to confirm when this incident happened," The police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire confirmed.

These are some of the comments on social media; 

"He was just a comedian why would anyone assassinate him so sad RIP"

"Oh Abiliga you didn't deserve this."

"But why? He has always been a joker, not any threat to anyone, why would you take his life....God come rescue Uganda."
