Patrick Onyango the deputy police spokesperson says the truck full of old and used car tyres were intercepted after some of the group members tipped police about their fellows who were planning to raze down Kampala city.
“The owners of the truck were being sought for questioning .A numbers of suspects are in custody as investigations into the tyre burning and arson continues. Onyango said.
Onyango added that the situation is currently under control and urged Ugandans to avoid engaging in acts of violence and economic sabotage.
