He revealed that the three cases of kidnap that were registered last week were mainly committed by people known to the victims. “They are either friends or business associates where business deals have gone bad between them. The kidnappers to me are not from organized criminal gangs” Sserujoji revealed.
He warned the public against drinking and associating with people they don’t know. He added that people of Greater Bushenyi sub-regionl should not get worried because police are on ground and the criminals who kidnapped their colleagues will be arrested soon.
