Closed Circuit Television –CCTV security cameras have helped joint security forces to arrest 40 people suspected to have attacked police officers during City protests against the arrest of presidential candidate, Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine.

Kyagulanyi was arrested in Luuka district on Wednesday morning on accusations of flouting Standard Operating Procedures –SOPs intended to curtail the spread of Covid-19. 

After reviewing CCTV footage, security team commanded by Ivan Nduhura traced and arrested the suspects that threw stones at police officers. Among the suspects include, Benson Kasozi, who was captured on video attacking Nakivubo Police Post commander, Consulate Kasule, with a hammer.

Kasule was attacked by Kasozi who was dressed in a red jumper and his colleague, Ashraf, who was dressed in a green t-shirt. Ashraf threw a stone at Kasule who was on the ground after being hit by Kasozi. The incident happened on Wednesday afternoon when Kasule was removing logs and stones placed in the middle of the road near Totalia building.

Police have now confirmed that Kasozi and Ashraf are now part of the 40 men arrested in afternoon operation. The suspects are also accused of having forcefully grabbed passengers and pedestrians’ property during the protest.

“Goons behind tyre burning in Nabugabo road and one called Ashraf who hit Kasule with stone are ready with us here at CPS . More than 40 goons who were robbing people we have arrested them,” Nduhura said.

Police Spokesperson, Fred Enanga, said 11 police officers were injured on Wednesday and Thursday particularly in Kampala metropolitan area that include Kampala City, Wakiso and Mukono districts.

Enanga said some of the suspects used nailed tyre cutters to deflate police patrols while others destroyed CCTVs cameras, street signs and destroyed tarmac roads. Some used the protest as an opportunity to loot motorists.
