The security team has established that all the armed warriors who used to terrorize the districts of kaabong and kotido have crossed to karenga district where they are hiding in the game park. The warriors are now stealing people’s food and feed on wild meat before going for cattle raids.
Michael Longole, the Mt Moroto Regional police spokesperson, says that the officers from the joint security forces came under attack while on their way to apprehend the suspected warriors. The injured officers are Jamri Mulondo, 27, and James Omara, 36, both attached to Sangar ASTU detachment and Sangar UPDF detachment respectively.
According to Michael Longole, the Mt Moroto Regional Police Spokesperson, the security patrol team encountered the warrior, who was wearing a bed sheet and a shirt resembling a UPDF uniform, around 8:30 pm.
Michael Longole, the Mt Moroto Regional Police Spokesperson told URN that the armed warrior properly camouflaged like a UPDF officer and the security team on patrol was so keen to identify him as a cattle rustler.
