He further explained, “They failed to gain access to other offices and left. They tried to break into a nearby home but the woman heard them she made an alarm that attracted other neighbours, and the thugs took off.” Adding, “But the chairman of the area and his security committee who normally patrols at night, they were called and they started hunting for the thugs. They were arrested and on searching them they were got with the three monitors, pandas, knives and other breaking implements.”
Onyango said the suspect is to be charged with burglary.
Asked what could be the motive of the thugs, Mr Kenneth Kabagambe, the executive director of NOPLHB said, “I cannot even imagine. After accessing the office with CIDs (Criminal Investigation Department) officers, we found out that three CPUs and two laptops were missing. This means they were many.”
