We want to urge the general public that whenever there is such operations, we work together as a team and support one another as exemplified in this particular operation and your cooperation is the reason why we succeeded.
The Uganda Police Force extends sincere condolences to the bereaved families and pray that God consoles and be with you during this trying moment.
