Four suspected thugs have been arrested for allegedly hacking a policeman Frederick Baguma. Baguma, a resident of Kirinda-Busabala Parish, Makindye Ssabagabo Municipality, in Wakiso district was attacked at around 3 am on Wednesday. 

Baguma later alerted his colleagues at Katwe police division who deployed sniffer dogs which led to the arrest of four suspects Mukiibi Umar, Mawanda Jimmy, Ecau Abraham, and Canodia Joseph. They were picked up inside a nearby construction site.

Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, confirmed the arrest of the suspects, adding that they robbed a flat-screen valued at 1.2 million shillings. However, Owoyesigyire said the suspects were not found with any of the stolen items but they are currently detained at Katwe police division.

“At approximately 3:00 AM, it is alleged that assailants gained access to Officer Baguma's residence and stole a flat-screen television valued at 1.2 million UGX and a small bag containing an unspecified amount of money. The assailants inflicted injuries on the victim before fleeing the scene. Officer Baguma promptly reported the incident to the police,” Owoyesigyire said.
