Police at Old Kampala are holding 60 suspects for allegedly being in possession of military material and other stolen items.
According to the Kampala Metropolitan police deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, two of the suspects were found in possession of a UPDF shirt and a bullet.
He says others were found with machetes, a pair of pliers, nails, harmers and other objects they allegedly use to assault the public.
Oweyesigyire says the operation to net these suspects was prompted by continuous robberies and attacks by people using motor cycles.
This comes on the heels of directive form the police Director of Operations AIGP Edward Ochom to all police commanders across the country to strengthen implementation of covid-19 regulations, citing increased laxity among members of the public.
The police commanders are also directed the police commanders to have snap checks to regulate movements during curfew times and intensify foot and motorised patrols.
These, he says will help address the rising crime rate usually recorded during curfew time.
