Residents of Kabarole asked to report cases of kidnap to police
Police in Kabarole District have urged residents to report cases of kidnap immediately so that they are handled professionally.
The warning, issued by the district CID boss, Godliver Twinomugisha, follows last week’s incident in which a family was forced to pay a ransom of Shs2.5 million to kidnappers of their one-year-old child.
The child was kidnapped from Itara in South Division, Fort Portal Municipality, and later dumped at St John’s Cathedral after the family paid the ransom.
Twinomugisha says residents should not quickly pay money o kidnappers but should inform police immediately and let them do their work.
