President Museveni has congratulated Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence squads which arrested a number of suspects implicated in gruesome gun down of assistant superintendent of police (ASP) Mohammed Kirumira.
The suspects were arrested in joint operation of police and CMI on Friday night in Namungoona the outskirts of Kampala. The operation led to arrest of nine suspects of which one Abdul Kateregga was shot and died on the arrival at Mulago hospital.
“I am sure I am speaking on behalf of many of you when I congratulate the CMI squads which arrested a number of suspects in the killing of ASP Kirumira on Friday night. Quite a number of them will appear in court soon,” said Mr. Museveni.
Museveni said, Kateregga was one of the members of allied Democratic Allied Forces (ADF) terrorists that had benefited from Amnesty in the past, “This, therefore, is to put on notice all the killers that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23),”
He appealed to all members who may have some more information about this particular gang of Kateregga to inform the police for them to be hunt down.
Since 2012, over 10 people have been gruesomely gunned down by unknown hooded assailants travelling on motorcycles however police not produced any report about these killings.
The gun downs have always been linked to ADF however since then, police and other security agencies made arrests however Directorate of public prosecution (DPP) has always failed to produce substantial evidences pinning suspects and none of them has been convicted of murder.
Slain ASP Muhammad Kirumira was on August 8, 2018 killed in hail of bullets along one Resty Nalinya by unknown assailants travelling on motorcycles as he proceeded to his home after attending a party of a senior police officer.
