Six LDU personnel held over robbery, staging illegal roadblocks

A total of six Local Defense Unit (LDU) personnel in Wakiso district have been arrested over robbery.

The suspects are said to have been staging several illegal roadblocks to rob local residents.

Their trouble stemmed from the September 2nd incident at Kyoja swamp in Wakiso district where George Turyahaba was stopped and robbed from an illegal roadblock mounted by the suspects.

Turyahaba was driving a Toyota double cabin pickup registration number UAS 655U.

Police says Turyahaba was robbed from an illegal checkpoint and unspecified sum of money with a mobile phone were stolen from him.

The police team at Wakiso divisional headquarters were informed at 10:45pm and subsequently responded with Canine dogs which tracked the suspects up to Namusera church.

As a result, the six LDU personnel were arrested and charged for robbery.
