A group of suspected criminals who had started looting commodities along Luwum street, Nakasero market, and the nearby areas have been arrested by police from CPS, led by Operations Commander, ASP Ivan Nduhura.
This followed video footage that went viral on social media platforms showing some of the suspected criminals stealing pineapples and other items from a small pickup truck.
According to kampala metropolitan police spokes person Patrick Onyango, the suspects were arrested from Nakasero market and other down town food markets.
“These people thought that we were not alert but we are very alert. We managed to swing in to action and deterred more of such criminality from occuring,” said Onyango.
He further noted that there has been reinforcements and deployment on the kampala city streets to protect food vendors and also to guard the closed businesses.
