Armed thugs have shot dead two people at Juba Hotel in Arua Park in Kampala Central Business district. The deceased have been identified as Muhammad Abdullah, a South Sudanese national and Ibrahim Akit whose nationality is yet to be established. 

The two were killed in their room at Juba Hotel at around 4 am in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. Unidentified gunmen reportedly stormed the hotel room at 4am and shot the two before making off with unspecified amount of money.

Trader in Arua Park chased the armed men and roughed them up before police was called to rescue them. Jackson Okanga, a trader in Arua Park told URN that they heard gunshots and saw three people coming out of the hotel running prompting them to chase them.

"The moment we got them, we put them together and started beating them. They had a gun but we were also many," Okanga said.

On arrival at the crime scene, officers from the Central Police Station (CPS) Kampala arrested the trio. The suspects have since been identified as Innocent Gumisiriza, a security guard with Top Security, Nelson Olibilunga, a resident of Seguku and employee of Saracen Security Company as well as Ronald Mulyera, a Burundian national.

The suspects were found in possession of a pistol registration number UG PSO T110206A011 belonging to Saracen which was assigned to Olibilunga. They were also found with a polythene bag with 29 rounds of ammunition for an AK47 riffle and 48 bullets for the pistol.

The Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, says there is suspicion that there were more suspects who made away with the stolen money before the trio was captured.
