CRIME & INVESTIGATIONS: Four people have been arrested and placed in police custody for allegedly attempting to break into the bedroom of the late Sheikh Nuuhu Muzaata’s at his home in Kate Falaawo, a Kawempe suburb
The Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Patrick Onyango confirmed the arrest identifying the the suspects as Sam Kigundu Sam, Solomon Okiror, Isaac Kando and Jackson Jemba.
The four men are said to have gained access into the deceased’s residence forcibly on Sunday night and were intercepted as they approached the deceased’s bedroom.
One of the family members raised alarm and police was called from Kawempe police station to pick up the invaders. Four others are said to be at large.
According to Onyango, the suspects told officers at Kawempe Police Station where they’re under custody that they were hired by one of Muzaata’s widow to provide her protection because she was worried for her life due to conflicts among family members.
“We’re still investigating all these, because the people who called the police said that they had started breaking into one of the rooms in the house to remove important documents. We are yet to verify all these,” said Onyango.
Adding that, “We have charged them with criminal trespass added Onyango.”
One of the deceased’s daughters, who declined to be named, dismissed the suspect’s claims, saying they should be tasked to explain why they broke into their home.
At the time of writing, there’s still high tension at the late Muzaata’s home.
