Police Arrests notorious gang of hard-core criminals Terrorizing City Dwellers
Uganda Police Force over the weekend arrest a group of suspected thieves who are famously known for terrorizing Makerere University’s surroundings especially Kikoni, which had become a “no-go zone” in the dark with the arrest of several suspects linked to “Kiface” (Night thugs).
According to the Force’s Chief Political Commissar Asan Kasingye, these are hardcore criminals that have been terrorizing the areas of Kawaala, Makerere, Kasubi among other areas adding that Investigations will continue to arraign them in courts of law.
Makerere Kikoni has held an infamous record of most theft-related cases amongst Makerere University students with some labeling it a dark corner in the dark. Countless phones, laptops, cash and other belongings have always drowned into the ocean of merciless thugs that at times physically harm their victims.
The crackdown followed the massive cry-outs; pushing the in-charge to press harder on the issue. An earlier shared text showed AIGP Asan Kasingye calling on the officers around Makerere Kikoni to act with promptness on the matter
“A group of hard-core criminals with a base in Makerere Kikoni is terrorising residents of Kawala, Makerere Kikoni, Kasubi and Namungona every night. Uganda Police Force come to the rescue of the people in these mentioned places. KMP Commander, D/KMP, Crime Intelligence KMP,DPC Wandegeya, DPC Old Kampala,and OC Station Makerere Kikoni take note. Don’t wait until these criminals start murdering people, act now,” Afande Kasingye said
