Kampala - Police in Uganda are holding a 21-year-old man who reportedly beheaded his 7-year-old brother so he can use his head to get rich.
Police identified the killer as Hebert Were and the beheaded boy as Joel Ogema, both residents of Busia district on the Kenya-Uganda border.
According to police, Were confessed that he beheaded his younger brother after being instructed to do so by a member of Illuminati in Kampala.
Uganda police spokesman Fred Enanga said: ''Were has told us that he cut off his brother's head but we arrested him on the way to meet the alleged Illuminati member who had asked for the head.''
Enanga said that Were decided to spend the night at a friend's. When Were fell asleep, his suspicious friend checked the bag and was shocked when he saw a head.
The friend ran to the police and reported the matter. Police arrested Were who immediately confessed that he was responsible for the head in the bag and even told police about the person he had been communicating with on phone and facebook about the head.
He said he connected to the Illuminati fellow on facebook, who told him that if he wanted to get rich he should take him a head of a human being. Later they started communicating on phone.
Police arrested a Kampala music promoter, Jeff Kiwanuka in connection with the murder on suspicion that he was the Illuminati fellow who gave Were instructions.
