Officer injured as errant driver tries to disarm him


On the 16.08.2020 at about 1710hrs, Police at Buloba checkpoint intercepted a numberless Markx MV after involving in a minor accident with a Taxi (Toyota Hiace) Reg No. UBA 681T at Bujuuko and failing to Stop at a check point.

The crews at Buloba swang into action after a tipoff from their counterparts at Bujuuko.

The driver of the numberless MV duly complied and parked.

A fleet of Subaru Forester MVs who were in the same company with the numberless Mv that had been intercepted arrived there after from the very direction of Mityana/Bujuuko in a loudy state and caused fracas at the Buloba checkpoint shouting that they were not ready to leave their colleague behind.

One of the drivers of an MV Reg no. UBD 026C Subaru Forester Black in colour grabbed the gun of No.66024 PC Ogwang Tonny Morris in an endeavour to disarm him.

In the scuffle, ammunitions were discharged and in that scuffle, suspectedly, a fragment of a cartridge hit hard on the stomach of 58883 PC Mutungirehe Ramuel causing him a superficial injury.

He is receiving medication at Cathalon Clinic but he is out of danger according to the clinical officer.

The Numberless mark X that had been impounded was forcefully driven away but the Subaru that was being driven by the errant driver as aforementioned remained at the checkpoint and it is impounded though he himself fled.

Inquiries instituted, according to Police spokesperson CP Fred Enanga.
