He adds that after wards, he raised a phone call to the area GISO who was accompanied by neighbors and opened for them, However reaching to the garage they found the car was being caught by fire which they put off although some components had perished.
Councillor Allan says suspects might be residents of Kyagaaju ward whom he had beef with in the past days, However, he asked police not to arrest any suspect saying that it’s God who will reward them.
“My car has always been used by residents as an ambulance therefore police should not arrest any suspect it’s God who will reward those who were behind the act. Allan said.
