Another gun has been recovered by the Police in the Albertine region. The rifle registration number UG Pol 303-65933107928 was recovered with two rounds of ammunition was stolen from a private security guard in Hoima city. 

It was recovered on Tuesday hidden in a culvert in Bulindi village Kyambigambire sub-county, Hoima district.

According to Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson, the gun was reportedly robbed from Eunice Kobusingye 28, a private security guard attached to Uganda Securiko company limited on November 28th,2022.    

She had been deployed to guard Kaaka Spare World Shop along Wright Road in Hoima City when the thugs reportedly raided the shop and took off with the gun.

Preliminary police investigations then indicated that the guard was asleep at the time the thugs raided the shop.  

Allan says that police were alerted by some members of the community who saw the gun in a culvert along the Hoima-Masindi road.  

They immediately swung into action and picked it, adding that they later established that it was the exact gun robbed from the private security guard in Hoima city on November 28th.

Hakiza has cautioned residents in possession of illegal guns in the region to voluntarily surrender them before tougher action is taken against them.

This is the second gun to be recovered in the Albertine in a period of six days. On Friday, the Police flying squad attached to the Albertine recovered a gun and arrested four suspects. 

The gun registration number URJ3106 was recovered from Nkondo landing site in Kabwoya sub-county in Kikuube district.
