Meanwhile, Kigozi spoke of the 24 suspected robbers who included a police officer a one Barnet Musiime attached to special investigations unit in Kireka, who were netted in Nakaseke on the same day after a robbery was carried out in Ngooma during the rain; where several heads of cattle, motorcycles and cash were taken.
