The Territorial Police in Luwero is actively investigating the murder of a tipper driver and subsequent robbery of his Tipper Lorry. The facts reveal that on the 27.01.2022, Ntanzi David, a driver of Tipper Lorry, under registration number, UAT 840 C, left his stage at around 3pm, upon receiving a phone call from Mubiru Lawrence, a 27-year-old, sand dealer, who asked the driver to meet him at Kibanvu village, Luwero, where they were to collect firewood. Unfortunately, after meeting them, they lead him to the forest at Kibanvu, where he was hit to head and killed instantly. They buried his body, in the forest and robbed his tipper lorry.
The investigation first started as a disappearance till when Kasozi Robert was seen driving the stolen Tipper from Luwero to Bombo, where it was hidden. The following day on the 28.01.2022, the police at Matugga intercepted the stolen Tipper Lorry at 11am, while being driven by Mbabali Frank and in the company of Mubiru Lawrence. The three suspects who include, Kasozi Robert, Mbabali Frank and Mubiru Lawrence, are now being processed on charges of Murder and Aggravated Robbery.
We urge all drivers and transporters to maintain heightened vigilance and conduct sufficient due diligence. The method of operation by the suspects was to hire a Tipper Lorry, then kill the driver and rob the truck.
We shall continue with our efforts to combat such senseless acts of violence. Our hearts are with the family of Ntanzi David during this difficult time.
