Must read

Police have applauded Moses Odongo, a Cheetah security guard, for foiling an armed robbery at his guard point of the Tonix Forex Bureau in Bukoto.

The guard fired two shots at two thugs who were vandalizing a Pajero motor vehicle under registration number UBK 519C in front of him. They fled the scene on their getaway motorcycle.

According to Enanga Fred, the Police Spokesperson, the thugs returned with a second accomplice who was armed with an AK-47 rifle, hidden in a bag, and tried to break into Tonix Forex Bureau. The guard opened fire at them and injured the rider and the second suspect with a bag containing the gun.

The third suspect fled from the scene. A police team responded swiftly and recovered an AK 47 rifle with eight rounds, breaking implements, and the motorcycle, a Bajaj boxer, which were all exhibited at Kira Road CPS.

The two suspects have been identified as Lawrence Kibuuka of Mpererwe, who was armed with a gun, and Ivan Musekule, the boda boda rider.

The security guard did a commendable job by disabling the thugs, which foiled the robbery and also led to the recovery of an AK 47 rifle.

“We also want to applaud the company for his level of bravery, tact, and skill. His quick reaction saved a robbery and loss to the Forex bureau, plus any other lives that could have been affected during the robbery,” Enanga said.
