Brig. Binani,Joseph Kony’s Chief Bodyguard has been killed by UPDF soldiers.Binani was shot and killed on Friday following a clash with a UPDF squad 280km north of Djema in the Central African Republic.
Binani was in charge of food collection as well as abducting children for the infamous rebel group, but may not have been recently operating close to Kony, Army spokesperson Col. Felix Kulayigye told journalists on Sunday.
Binani death comes a few days after US President Barack Obama assented to an amended law, which offer a cash reward for whoever arrests Kony and his top commanders.
“For the chief escort to die in combat means you are close to the bone marrow. It is an encouragement; we are decimating the command structure of the LRA. We are making arrangements to bring his body to Gulu,”
