1 min read

Following numerous complaints from motorists, especially boda boda riders who reported cases of people in civilian wear impounding their motorcycles and later extorting money from them before releasing them, the Police yesterday conducted an operation in which six suspects were arrested.

The suspects operate around Clock Tower and Biwologoma where several complaints had been registered.

The suspects include 3 KCCA enforcement officers whom the riders accuse of colluding with other people to extort money.

A chain used to lock down the motorcycles in ungazetted places has also been recovered and taken as evidence.

According to KMP Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire, the operation is still ongoing and the public should take note that only officers in uniform should stop and impound a vehicle.

“In case you are affected by such a situation, report the matter to the DPC, Central Police Station or Officer in charge of traffic,” Owoyesigire directed.

He added, “The arrested suspects will be arraigned in courts of law as soon as investigations on them are done.”
