Police Arrests Armed Hooded Men That Were Pictured Riding on Boda Boda

Kira Road Police Station has arrested the suspected unknown armed hooded men.

The suspects identified as Elias Elibu and Charles Emeru were arrested along Bukoto Road by a response team led by DPC Kira Road Police SP. Michael Kasigire and two SAR riffles recovered.

Upon questioning the suspects told police they belonged to Tactical Security Services, a local private security company based at Mutesa II Road in Ntinda.

Their arrest came as a result of Social Media concerns about some unknown hooded armed men travelling on the Kyanja- Kisasi road using a motorcycle registration number UEU 497T carrying guns.

The security company was contacted, verified the identities of the security guards and cautioned about the general standard procedures required of all Private Security Organisations (PSOs)

The arrest is also an enforcement of the directive by President Museveni as issued during his 10-point security plan address to parliament in June.

Museveni while addressing Parliament on state of security in the country on 20th June 2018, directed that inter-alia persons riding motorcycles,bicycles and driving motor vehicles should henceforth not wear hoods.

This also extends to driving, riding while putting on anything that can conceal, obscure facial disposition.
