Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire confirmed that the vehicle had been burnt and police had removed it from the scene by a breakdown and some suspects have been arrested and taken along with it.

‘Among the suspect arrested is Will, a thug in that same place. The vehicle had a mechanical fault and it had parked on the side of the road. So heartless people took advantage of it,’ he said.

Owoyesigyire said another key suspect identified as Ssemwanga managed to escape but that they were hunting for him.

Drones gained notoriety after security agencies started using them to transport suspects who had been arrested under mysterious circumstances.
