The development comes after a clash between Subaru drivers and Buloba checkpoint officers and one was shot.
“On August 16,2020 at about 5pm, Police at Buloba checkpoint intercepted a numberless Markx mv after involving in a minor accident with a Taxi(Toyota Hiace)Reg No. UBA 681T at Bujuuko and failing to Stop at a check point,” Enanga narrated.
He said that the crew at Buloba swang into action after a tipoff from their counterparts at Bujuuko where the driver of the numberless mv duly complied and parked.
According to Enanga, a fleet of Subaru Forester mvs who were in the same company with the numberless mv that had been intercepted arrived there after from the very direction of Mityana/Bujuuko in a loudly state and caused fracas at the Buloba checkpoint shouting that they were not ready to leave their colleague behind.
“One of them, a driver of a MV Reg no. UBD 026C Subaru Forester Black in colour grabbed the gun of No.66024 PC Ogwang Tonny Morris in an endeavour to disarm him,” Enanga told the press.
He added that in the scuffle,ammunitions were discharged and suspectedly, a fragment of a cartridge hit hard on the stomach of 58883 PC Mutungirehe Ramuel causing him a superficial injury.
Enanga said he is receiving medication at Cathalon Clinic but he is out of danger according to the clinical officer.
“The Numberless mark X that had been impounded was forcefully driven away but the Subaru that was being driven by the errant driver as aforementioned remained at the checkpoint and it is impounded though he himself fled. Inquiries instituted,” he said.
