Forces connected to his rival Moise Tshombe, officially. However, he had by then turned everyone against him - his own President, army commander, the Belgians and the Americans - not in the least by appealing for help to the Soviet Union. So his arrest, confinement and death by firing squad probably was a concerted action by all of his enemies.

US and its allies wanted to assassinate Lumumba because they accused him of being a communist. Unfortunately, they were completely wrong and ended up killing and innocent state official. This is what started the Cold War.
