Police has shot and killed a notorious robber in Kasangati Town Council, Wakiso district.
The robber identified as Jamil Muwonge aka South Pole was part of a criminal gang that has been terrorizing people in and around Kasaganti areas.
Police says the criminal was gunned down in an intelligence led operation yesterday afternoon at Bulamu village, Kasaganti Town Council, Wakiso district.
Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesman Patrick Onyango says Muwonge was first shot in the leg to disable him but he tried to attack one of the police officers and he was shot dead by another officer.
“Other criminals fled away in the process and we are hunting for them,” Onyango said.
“We want to appreciate our officers for confronting the criminals who had become a problem to the residents. The operation to get rid of these criminals is still ongoing and we are calling for cooperation from the public.”
