The police have said that the attacks on its officers are politically motivated.
Addressing journalists at the Naguru police headquarters this morning, police spokesperson Fred Enanga said they have registered a slight increase in fatal attacks on police officers by unknown assailants who often make off with guns.
He says in a space of four months six police have been killed and six guns are still missing.
Last week, two police officers were killed and their guns taken after four assailants raided a police post in Kiboga District at about 7:30pm.
Enanga says eye witnesses reported they heard the assailants say they were only targeting government workers.
On December 7, two police officers; Alfred Okech and Moses Kigongo, were shot dead by criminals, who lured them to the crime scene and also made off with their guns after.
