The Deputy RCC Peter Banya says the suspects were on security’s wanted the list for the past two years and their arrest was meant to serve as a relief to the affected communities, who had endlessly filed complaints against them. However, their "peaceful escape" without any of the cells guards firing to scare them off raises suspicion of an inside job.
Mbayo was last week arrested while receiving a bribe of 500,000 Shilling from Lt. Edrine Ochieng, a soldier who was developing his plot of land located at plot 16 along Naranbhai road in Jinja central division.
Diana Nandawula, the Kiira Regional Police Publicist says that the second gun was found at a residence in works zone, Nile Crescent road in Jinja town. It is suspected that the gun was abandoned by one of the guards, who plotted the robbery.
The Kiira Region Police Spokesperson, Diana Nandawula says investigations are ongoing. “The victim has been examined and when our file is complete, we shall forward it to the Resident State Attorney for legal advice on the preferable charges against the suspect,” she said.
