An unidentified thug was shot dead in a robbery in Kigoowa village near East High school in Kawempe Division, in Kampala in the wee hours of this morning.

According to preliminary information, the deceased was gunned down by officers from Tuba police post when he and three others raided some apartments in the area.  

The officers responded to a distress call. Luke Owoyesigyire, the Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, confirmed the shooting.

Daniel Mugisha, whose house was raided by the suspected thugs, says that he had just entered his bedroom around 1:25 am when he had heard the security guard screaming.

The thugs were tying the guard who was armed with a bow and arrow. Mugisha says that he had just completed some work on his laptop in the sitting room. Mugisha believes the thugs kept watching him and waited for him to switch off the inside lights.

After hearing the security guard screaming, Mugisha peeped through the curtains to see what was happening to their watchman. It was at this point the thugs warned Mugisha and his wife not to dare alert anyone. He says that thugs shuttered his window panes and cut the padlocks on the burglar proof before they got in.

Apart from the wallets, laptop and phones, the thugs also picked Mugisha’s home theatre and wrist watch. Nevertheless, Tuba police forced the thugs to drop the items after surrounding them at the scene where one was eventually killed.

Conrad Ezra Owori, whose house was also broken into, says that he didn’t hear the thugs breaking into his neighbour’s house.  He says that he only saw the thugs pouncing on his door and had no idea who to call for help. Owori said thugs delayed to enter the house because he had put some strong padlocks on the burglar proofs.

They had to first hit the hinges while he and other family members fastened their bedroom doors with their beds.

One of the thugs had moved Mugisha’s home theatre outside the gate while the laptop, phones and wallets were in their bags that they entered within Owori’s home.

Mugisha said their home was easily targeted because it neighbors uncompleted house, which becomes very dark at night. Criminals cut the razor wires and turned outside the security lights.
