Police have repulsed yet another attack on one of their Kampala stations by an unknown assailant who was also forced to abandon a gun magazine.
An incident report from Old Kampala Division states that the attack occurred at Nankulabye Police Post at 4 a.m.
It is alleged that Teki Robert, a police officer at Nankulabye Police Post, was on duty as the station guard and had taken cover in a parked vehicle next to the station when he saw an unidentified armed person advancing to the station.
Teki then fired at the suspect, forcing him flee.
The suspect abandoned an AK magazine with 30 rounds of ammunitions.
The Old Kampala DPC, OC Station, OC CID, Soco and other detectives have visited the scene of crime and interviewed key witnesses. An exhibit of a magazine was recovered and efforts underway to view and analyse the CCTV cameras.
This comes six days after assailants attacked Gaddafi Barracks in Jinja, killed a soldier and went away with two guns.
Earlier on October 31, undisclosed assailants attacked Busiika Police Station in Luweero District, killing two police officers and injuring two others. One of the injured police officers later succumbed to the injuries. On the evening, the attackers also took away two guns.
In the earlier attack at Kiwumpa village, the attackers killed a police officer at a traffic checkpoint as they took two guns.
Security personnel have since last year been investigating incidents of attacks on police posts.
A number of arrests have been made and the attacks are being linked to a rebel outfit, the Uganda Coalition Forces for Change –UCFC whose alleged commander David Frank Ssemogerere alias Col Ndugwa was arrested and charged in the General Court Martial.
