“We received a number of complaints from boda boda riders, that they are being terrorised by robbers at the Northern by-pass, most of their motorcycles have been stolen and some of them have been killed. After making thorough investigations, we arrested Frank Mugisha who led us to his accomplices,” Kasinga revealed.

He added: “The three have been using arms in the robberies they have carried out and the search is going to find those guns, but preliminary investigations show that the trio has been using a sub machine gun.”

Kasinga said that the three will be taken to court where they will face armed robbery and murder charges.
