The Territorial Police in KMP South and Nateete, are investigating circumstances under which, a one Sseginuja Mohammed, a 6 year old, male juvenile and son to Nassazi Sarah, aged 22 was kidnapped from Mutundwe-Mbawo zone in Rubaga division, Kampala district.
The facts gathered indicate that the victim was lured by a male stranger, who offered to go and buy for him a bicycle, as birthday gift at the nearest shop and that’s how he disappeared.
”An immediate search was conducted in the neighbourhood but all in vain and the matter reported to police,” says Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson.
He says the victim was later abandoned with a boda boda rider at Kisenyi, from whom the stranger had borrowed a phone, in order to make a phone call. He disappeared with it and abandoned the victim as a bait with the bodaboda rider.
”The area police recovered the victim and re-united him with his parents. The new trick is becoming common in Rubaga division and we would like to caution members of the public, to desist from handing over their mobile phones, wherever, a person approaches them with a young child,” says Enanga adding, ”We further encourage them, to interview the victim and find out, if they are related to the person with them or not. In this very instance, the bodaboda rider remained with the child, not knowing that he was kidnap victim.”
