HOIMA: Police in Hoima are investigating circumstances under which cows were stolen from Bigando village, Nyakabingo parish, in Buseruka Sub County.
The Albertine region police spokesperson, Julius Allan Hakiza, revealed that on Sunday, June 4, 2023, at around 2:00 a.m., one Daniel Talemwa, 50, went to guard his animals, and there came five people wearing overcoats.
According to Hakiza, in the process of flashing the torch, Talemwa managed to identify one of them as being armed with a gun.
Hakiza said the victims had to run away in fear, and when they came back in the morning to do stock checking, they found out that two cows had been stolen from the kraal.
The regional police mouthpiece says efforts to look for the suspects are on since no one has yet been arrested, thus advising cattle keepers to guard their cattle jealousy and report any case of theft to the immediate police station.
He adds that due to the rampant cattle theft in the district, some thieves are now using toy guns while others have real ones.
