Police have hailed a 65-year-old nurse who bravely disarmed two armed robbers in Kasokoso, Kireka suburbs in Wakiso district.

Police spokesperson, Fred Enanga has identified the nurse as Teddy Namutebi, 65 who disarmed robbers who had attacked her private health facility in Kasokoso at around 9:00pm last night. 

 

The two armed robbers attacked Victory medical clinic pretending to be patients. According to Police, Namutebi took them inside one of the private rooms as she thought they had come for treatment.    

Enanga explains that in the private room, the two assailants asked the 65-year-old nurse to give them all the money she had before one of them pulled the gun out of the overcoat he was putting on.

“The two had a pistol hidden in the jacket, so when they were taken in the laboratories for the blood check, one pulled out the gun and started ordering everyone to go on the ground and asking for money, but Namutebe took a braved them and grabbed it, quickly and they made alarm. Enanga said.” 

Namutebi grabbed the pistol from one of the assailants before others started making an alarm that attracted neighbors. The thugs took off leaving behind their pistol. 

Enanga hailed the 65-year-old nurse for bravery that saw her disarm the robbers as well as foiling the robbery.

The incident is one of the rarest in which robbers are disarmed and forced to flee after abandoning their plan of robbery. Enanga explains that the pistol has been handed over to Kireka police for tracing.

“We are going to trace in our records to see whether this pistol belongs to any member of security agencies, if it does not belong to security, you are aware of some guns that come from hostile areas like eastern Congo and South Sudan, even this one could be coming from those areas," Enanga noted.
