Armed thugs have raided the residency of a money lender in Kagadi district and robbed Shillings 4.3 million at gunpoint. The victim is James Kaija, a money lender in Insunga cell in Insunga Parish in Kagadi district.

The incident occurred around 1 AM on Monday morning. It is alleged that the thugs raided Kaija’s home and ordered him to get out of his house in vain. The thugs then broke the door and gained access into his house and placed Kaija at gunpoint. They ordered him to surrender all the money in his possession.  

Kaija handed the thugs over Shillings 4.3 million. After executing their mission successfully, the thugs locked the victim inside his house and fired several bullets in the air as they fled from the scene and disappeared to an unknown destination.
