The suspects were: Brian Akora, Robert Bwiire, Gerald Naama, Godfrey Wasswa Juuko and Yahaya Ssewanyana.

Court referred the case to Division Court Martial at Land Force Headquarters in Bombo, saying the Unit Disciplinary Committee Court has no jurisdiction to try such offences.

Section 119 of the UPDF Act stipulates that any person found with weapons, ammunition or equipment that are ordinarily a monopoly of the armed forces will be subject to Military Law and tried by the Court Martial.

Court also advised the public to desist from using military stores adding that anyone caught with it will be dealt with under military laws.
