Police Deploys more officers on Entebbe Express Way Following last week’s shooting
Security agencies have voted to tighten security along the Entebbe Expressway where two people were assassinated on Thursday night.
The duo, Melina Tumukunde and Joshua Ruhegyera Ntereho were gunned down at Nambigirwa Bridge towards Mpala in Katabi Town Council by unknown assailants.
A police officer attached to the Counter Terrorism Unit identified as Corporal Davis Taremwa was arrested on Friday afternoon in connection to the killings. Now, security agencies led by Uganda Police force have deployed more officers along the Expressway to prevent such occurrences in future.
More officers have been deployed at several spots along the expressway in areas like Kitende flyover, Nambirigwa Bridge and Kajjansi round about for the last three days.
According to Baker Kawonaw, the Entebbe Police Division Commander, the deployment is important as Police continues with investigations into the murder incident.
"Actually if you never expected such deployment after such an incident, you wouldn't be considerate. We strive to secure the country especially in places that are seen to be dangerous spots." Kawonawo noted.
