Second Gun Stolen from Another Security Guard in Iganga

The attack comes just two weeks after the victim's colleague, Asuman Mutegula, a private guard working with the same security group was shot dead while guarding a produce store, in Kasokoso ward, in Central division, in Iganga municipality.


Police in Busoga East have embarked on efforts of hunting down unknown assailants who on Thursday night shot and injured 27 year old Kassim Tenywa, a security guard attached to Blue light security company limited before fleeing with his gun.

Tenywa had been deployed to guard Nakavule fuel station when unknown assailants charged and shot him in the stomach.

The attack comes just two weeks after the victim's colleague, Asuman Mutegula, a private guard working with the same security group was shot dead while guarding a produce store, in Kasokoso ward, in Central division, in Iganga municipality.

The assailants equally fled off with his gun and police have so far arrested four suspects who are still being detained at Iganga central police station, awaiting further prosecution.

Tenywa had earlier informed well-wishers who rushed him to Iganga general hospital's emergency ward how he had dumped the gun in the nearby store during the attack.

However, after searching for the missing gun to no avail, the detectives resolved to revisit the scene of crime on Friday and reviewed CCTV footage from neighboring areas, where they obtained leads indicating that the assailants had fled off with the gun after being convinced that their victim was already dead.

Tenywa is still in critical condition, however, a doctor who spoke to us on condition of anonymity says that, his life is out of danger, but they are monitoring the smoothness of blood flow, so as to avert any possible cases of blood clotting.

Meanwhile, the Busoga East police spokesperson, Diana Nandawula advised owners of private security companies, to enforce the government directive of deploying at least two guards per duty station, where the extra guard can act as back-up for his colleague in case of an attack.
