He added that when one of the guards went to check on him, he could not be traced. “The guard called his fellow guards and moved all over the premises searching for him but could not see him. They even moved some kilometres hunting for him but in vain,” says another police officer.

He added that they came back and reported to boss who was on night duty about the escape of the senior officer. “The guards after reporting to their boss even went and searched his home but could not find him,” says other female police officer.

When contacted Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango he confirmed that it’s true the officer escaped from police custody and court has issued a warrant of arrest against him.
