Partick Kintu Kisekulo, the LCV Chairperson for Kyotera district
says the victims were last night dropped in different trading centres by people
driving in security vehicles commonly known as Toyota drones. He says
the return of the suspects have relived the situation, indicating their
relatives were afraid that they could be dead after they did not appear on the
list of suspects in security detention facilities.
Kisekulo however reveals
that one of the suspects is not in good health condition and is currently
admitted to a local health facility where he is receiving treatment.

Darausi Kibuuka, the LCI Chairperson for Kisamula village in
Kasaali town council indicates that they are excited that the suspects have
returned physically unhurt, saying that they will follow up on other issues
after they settle in.
He reveals that six of the seven suspects that had gone missing
from his villages have returned, saying that they are optimistic that the remaining
persons could be somewhere within the area.
Kibuuka says that they have also not yet listened to their ordeal because
some of them are still in shock and their relatives have also not given the
space to narrate their ordeals.

agencies produce them without fail.
