A Ugandan DJ was reportedly killed by members of the crowd while playing a set at a disco hall. The violence occurred days ago in the country’s Akworo Sub-county in the Nebbi District.

According to the report, a mob of angry revelers attacked the DJ, named Jerry Okirwoth, when he refused to play their favorite music, calling his set “boring.” The establishment’s management team has been blamed for failing to protect the DJ.

Nebbi Resident District Commissioner William Bob Labeja addressed the public concerning the startling act of violence:

As the head of security in the district, I will no longer allow any disco operators to conduct their businesses in the sub-county and anybody who defies the directive will be prosecuted. All disco halls in all sub counties must be closed because they are causing insecurity and redundancy among the youth.”

Violence apparently runs rampant in the area. Labeja said there have been reports of five other people killed in the district over the past week.
