Police has rescued three infants who went missing one week ago from gang of kidnappers. 

The three children who are all pupils of Smart Nursery Day and Boarding School in Nabuti, Mukono were kidnapped from their homes in Kasangati and Nabuti after they were lured by a stranger who is a cobbler.

According to Kampala Metropolitan police spokesperson Patrick Onyango, the rescued children are six – year – old Kisha Abisagi, whose parents Nicholas Obukakalebu and Kisha Nabachwa, have received her at their home in Wampeewo, Kasangati town council;  six – year – old Maria Ssangi and Seven – year – old Simon Nsubuga, both children of Zaina Nagujja, a resident of Nabuti in Mukono district.

Nicholas Obukakalebu, the father to one of the rescued infants Kisha Abisagi, says the kidnapper lured his child from the compound at home and went off with her.   He alerted the neighbours and police and also displayed the missing child’s photo with his contact on social media pages for nearly one week. Abisagi was found in a stressed mood after missing her parents for some days.

Cue …and they disappeared.”//

 

Onyango, says that six – year – old Maria Ssangi and Seven – year – old Simon Nsubuga, are still under police protection in Tororo district as they wait for their parents to pick them.

But Onyango says he cannot disclose the identities of the suspects who conducted the kidnap nor their homes of origin for security reasons, but says one suspect was transferred from Tororo police stations to Kasangati police as investigations are being coconducted. 

  

He says that parents should repeatedly tell their children not to accept gifts nor  interact with strangers, but should play within their home compounds and only with known friends.
