On the night of December 9, 2022, at around 11 p.m. local time, the Police at Kyabadaza Station received a disturbance call from the LC 3 Chairperson about two suspected cattle thieves on two motorcycles who were on the verge of being lynched by the community at Kasule Ayanguwa village. Budde Subcounty is in Butambala District.

ASP Tumushabe Lydia, the Katonga regional police Spokesperson, said a task team immediately responded, rescued the two suspected cattle thieves, and took them into custody at Butambala police station.

“Moments after, a group of three men on a boda boda motorcycle reached the scene in the village and started inquiring about what happened. They looked suspicious, and the community threatened to arrest them, unaware that they were armed with a gun. The suspects drew out their guns and shot at the residents gathered, killing two instantly. The deceased persons have been identified as Kalyango Ibra and Nsubuga Peter,” ASP Tumushabe said.

The armed assailants proceeded to Kyabadaza and attacked officers on duty. A fire exchange occurred, which enabled the escape of suspects, including the two suspected cattle thieves. Although no officers were injured and no guns were lost, part of the offices got burned, she narrated.

According to her, at this stage, the motive of the suspects has not yet been determined. However, our evidence response teams are already processing the crime scene. In addition, our operational and intelligence teams have embarked on a mission to identify the attackers and ensure they are brought to justice.

This is the latest attack on a security installation recorded within a period of two weeks since police posts were merged.
