Nansana Police Station OC, AIP, Muhammadi Kirumira, notes that police has been able to track down several group leaders, arrest and imprison them which has reduced on their threats in the country.

“I want to warn the public that they should take knee since these groups are now recruiting to fire up their operations,” warned Kirumira in an exclusive interview with Chimpreports.

“All robbers operate in groups with commands and instructions from their group commanders and operate like any other security unit; these are not terrorists but their mission is to go hit the target, get money and survive. They are ready to do away with anybody who engages them and not smarter than them,” he further warned.

Kirumira has on top of that named the robber groups and their places of operation plus some of their leaders that have ever been arrested.
