The family of the murdered special hire driver Batte Christopher has asked police to fully investigate and establish the death of their person.
The son the late Francis Batte, asked police to investigate so that they get justice for the deceased and not just close the case.
The wife to the deceased Catherine Batte said she bid farewell to her husband in the morning as he was leaving for work just like any other day. She says they communicated again at around 5pm but she was surprised by a call she received at around 7:30pm informing her that her husband had been murdered.
Catherine says she went to Bajjo and indeed confirmed that her husband had been murdered.
