Following a massive turn up at the third celebrity mass held at Rubaga Cathedral yesterday, four thugs identified as ‘good business opportunity’ allegedly decided to return in the night and try to rob the offertories.
Deputy Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire, says in the night four unknown assailants holding machetes and sticks attacked the private security guard at the Cathedral.
“Because the security guard at the cathedral uses only batons and not guns, the thugs used this opportunity to pounce on him. In the process, he made an alarm that attracted armed security guards at nearby buildings,” Owoyesigyire said.
The armed security guard is said to have intervened and shot dead one of the attackers which prompted colleagues to vanish from the scene.
Police has started investigations into circumstances under which a man was shot dead.
