Boda boda riders in Masindi district are threatening to attack police over brutality.
This was revealed by the RDC this morning in the district covid 19 s taskforce meeting held at RDC’s premises.
Rose Kirabira Kobusinge the Resident District Commissioner – RDC Masindi alerted the COVID 19 taskforce and told them how boda boda riders are planning to attack police over brutality.
She explained that few days ago, the chairperson of boda boda riders in Masindi district informed her that fellow riders are planning to attack police.
Kirabira thus asked the district security personnel to be aware and ready for anything that might happen anytime.
Alex Otiti the District Internal Security Officer – Masindi said that he has talked to ASP Ednah Nyiraneza the acting District Police Commander Masindi on the issue of people who are violating presidential guidelines.
“Due to inadequate man power, the acting district police commander is yet to write to the army commander at Masindi artillery barracks to support us with enough man powe,” He noted.
On Friday last week, a boda boda rider was critically injured and admitted at Masindi District General Hospital after getting an accident as he escaped from police.
This forced his colleagues to storm the RDC’ office over the same issue, which seems to have yielded no fruit.
