Share post:

Nakaseke Police successfully rescued two kidnapped school children and are currently conducting a manhunt for the suspects involved. The children, Phiona Tusingwire (4 years old) and Patience Tarindeka (5 years old), were reportedly abducted by a casual worker known as Sande from their home in Nakaseke district.

According to SCP Fred Enanga, the police spokesperson, Sande was entrusted with the responsibility of transporting the children to Apex Model Primary School in Kyankwanzi district on March 1, 2024. Under the pretense of taking them to school, Sande picked up the children from their mother, unaware of the worker’s ulterior motive. Sande had plotted to disappear with the children and demand a ransom from the parents.

Enanga revealed that Sande fled with the two children on a motorcycle with registration number UFB009B. A search operation was immediately launched, employing advanced technology and intelligence work.

Police collaborated with territorial teams from Kyankwanzi and Nakaseke in order to effectively recover the children. Fortunately, the young girls were found abandoned at Kabale Bridge, still in their school uniforms and slightly shaken but in good health.

After a thorough medical examination, the children were reunited with their parents. Enanga expressed his gratitude towards the Crime Intelligence (CI) task team, the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), and the territorial units in Nakaseke for their combined efforts in the rescue operation. He also extended his appreciation to the families, friends, and volunteers who assisted in the successful recovery of the children.

Nevertheless, the police are determined to bring the suspects to justice. The investigation continues to trace not only Sande but also any other individuals involved as accomplices in the alleged kidnapping of the two young girls. The authorities are committed to ensuring that those responsible are held accountable for their actions.
