Armed Thugs Rob UGX 3m from Mobile Money Agent in Kagadi

The three-armed robbers disguised as clients and later held the agent identified as Scovia Kansiime at gunpoint until she surrendered all the money she had in her possession. The incident took place at around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Julius Hakiza, the Albertine region police spokesperson says the hunt for the suspected armed robbers is ongoing.
Police in Kagadi are hunting for a group of robbers who raided Rugashari Town Council in Kagadi district and robbed three million Shillings from a mobile money agent.

The three-armed robbers disguised as clients and later held the agent identified as Scovia Kansiime at gunpoint until she surrendered all the money she had in her possession. The incident took place at around 9:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson says that the police flying squad dispatched to hunt for the thugs has so far recovered one cartridge at the crime scene that he says will help them identify the type of gun used in the robbery.

In May, unidentified armed robbers shot and critically injured a businessman identified as Noor Katusabe and his wife who was identified only as Nsungwa who were targeted as they returned home from their shop in Kyenzige town Council, Kagadi district.

The couple was ambushed as soon as they entered their gate and asked to surrender all the cash they had. Katusabe resisted, prompting the robbers to shoot him in the neck, causing critical injuries before fleeing from the scene. 

The robberies have continued despite the recent arrest of seven suspected robbers in a police-led operation which also led to the recovery of one gun. The suspects were identified as Private Ivan Kato 34, a deserter from the Uganda People's Defense Forces-UPDF and resident of Magondo cell, Kazo district, Richard Aliganyira 34, a resident of Khumbi village in Kyenjojo district and Patrick Fina 34, a resident of Kahungabunyonyi village in Fort Portal City.  

The others are Chris Luweza 25, a resident of Rwengoma cell in the Central division of Fort-portal City, Yasin Kyaligonza 26, a resident of Kyakasana cell in Kagadi district, Januarious Agaba 26 of Nyamamga cell,  in Kagadi and Natasha Katusabe 19, a resident of Rweihamba village in Kamwenge district.   

They were arrested during an intelligence-led operation conducted by the Police, UPDF soldiers, and other sister security agencies in Kagadi. They were found hiding at a service point bar and lodge situated in Muhorro town council.   

Upon arrest, the security operatives recovered an AK47 riffle registration number UGPOLZ7514807408 and one magazine with 4 rounds of ammunition from the thugs. The thugs were also found with three pairs of army uniforms and three army jackets.
