In another tragic incident, unknown assailants are said to have broken into Bungokho Police Station in Mbale District and taken off with two guns and a radio call.

The assailants according to Elgon Regional Police Spokesperson, Rogers Taitika, broke into the police premises on Wednesday night. This was just hours after a relatively similar incident was about to happen at Nakulabye Police Station in Kampala where an unidentified armed assailant approached the station deep in the night of Tuesday. Luckily enough, the police guard was quick to respond to this person who took off and abandoned his AK47 riffle.

On 14th November 2022, gunmen attacked Kensington police post in the affluent Kyanja, a Kampala city suburb, and fired two rounds shattering the window panes of the police post.

Owoyesigyire then said that none of the officers was injured in the attack.

“We have not registered any injury or death in the shooting because our officers were alert and they responded well by chasing them,” he said.

The attack came almost a fortnight after gunmen attacked Busika police station in Luwero district and killed two police officers, injured two others, and made off with two firearms. One of the injured officers later succumbed to the gunshot wounds.

Security has since blamed the attack on Uganda Forces for Coalition Change, a rebel outfit. Owoyesigyire says that they have enhanced security at all police posts and stations around Kampala as well as pump fuel stations.

The incidents also come against the recent decision by the police leadership to merge several police posts around Kampala, Ssezibwa, and Katonga regions as the force pilots a new policing model which will be based at the sub-county.
