Police investigations have revealed Agaba’s gun, a Singapore Assault Rifle (SAR) containing 3 bullets, was robbed.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Idi Ibin Ssenkumbi, Agaba becomes the foruth guard to be killed this year in Masaka.
It is highly feared the escaltion of gun robberies could be linked to subversive activities of rebel groups operating from within Uganda.
Just two days ago, a petrol station was attacked in Bweyogerere forcing the police to shoot all the six robbers, killing one instantly.
“We advise the proprietors of fuel stations to at least employee two guards, because the stations have of late become a target by robbers,” Ssenkumbi advised.
He also revealed that since it may not be easy for the thieves to connive with such guards, they end up killing them to effect their robberies without interruptions.
“Police is now on the alert and vigilant, we shall deal with such robbers as the law requires,” pledged Ssenkumbi.
