Jinja Camp ‘A’ LC1 Chairperson, Tom Aguma has warned local residents living in his area about the escalating numbers of criminal acts increasing daily in his area.
While talking to The Ankole Times, he said whoever transfers from another LC1 territory to his area will not be accepted from today onwards.
He said areas bordering Jinja camp like Ojwina, Kakoge and other nearby cells should take this seriously because as of now a number of criminals are on the rise with several offences of untold nature.
For example, if you want to rent a house in Ojwina or Jinja camp you better produce a recommendation letter from your previous LC to show us that you have a clean record free of crime.
Odaga kizito LC1 Chairman of Jinja camp ‘B’ wanted security to grant them permission to launch a night operation from midnight to 6:00 AM so as to prevent criminals robbing people at night.
Mike Ogwal the councillor Kakoge Parish said security forces like police and the UPDF should focus their attention in Kakoge because it is becoming a very complicated area for criminals.
The UPDF Spokesperson for 5TH Division Capt. Amos Samba who spoke to the media this week said putting on military like attires/uniform is criminal.
Recently police arrested some youth fromAleptong,Dokolo and Lira city for putting on arteries that look similar or alike to that of the army.
They were taken before army court martial and forgiven but warned by the army never to repeat the same act according to the 5th Division PRO.
