In a recent operation, the State House Anti-Corruption Unit apprehended 11 security guards who were involved in an illegal eviction case. The guards, employed by Magnum Security, a private security firm, were found responsible for forcefully evicting residents and guarding private property.

The State House Anti-Corruption Unit released a statement today, shedding light on the incident that occurred on March 11, 2024. The illegal eviction took place at Plot 106, Old Kira Road, Ntinda, a location that has been at the center of a contentious ownership battle.

According to the statement, the conflict traces back to December 26, 2023, when the land in question was demolished under the orders of one Yusuf Semakula. The demolishment was carried out without a court order, mirroring a previous incident that targeted the family home of the late Eng. Johnson Eliba Orech on the same land.

“On December 26, 2022, the family home of the late Eng. Johnson Eliba Orech was demolished without a court order after a similar attack by people acting on the orders of one Yusuf Semakula,” reads the statement.

The investigation into the matter led the Unit to advise that the Eliba family retain their occupation of the property until the court case regarding ownership is conclusively settled.

Despite an interim injunction from the Court of Appeal, issued on December 23, 2023, to maintain the Eliba family’s occupation of the property, Yusuf Semakula disregarded the court’s decision. On March 1, 2024, Semakula orchestrated a second eviction of the family, employing Magnum Security guards.

The State House Anti-Corruption Unit condemned these actions, prompting their intervention to uphold justice and reinstate the rule of law. Their operation resulted in the arrest of 11 security guards, who now face charges related to the illegal eviction.

On January 5, 2024, six suspects were apprehended while forcefully entering the partially demolished family home of the late Eng. Johnson Eliba Orech. Armed with machetes, these individuals assaulted family members and stole belongings, including a phone and money.

The State House Anti-Corruption Unit’s actions display a commitment to addressing corruption and preventing the abuse of power. By apprehending those involved in the illegal eviction and subsequent crimes, they aim to protect the rights of citizens and ensure justice prevails.
