It is alleged that on February 3rd, 2024, the two suspects had a misunderstanding with Kitooke Isaac, an 18-year-old, and assaulted him using a long stick while confining him with building iron bars atop a building they were guarding along Nakivubo in Kampala city, which was under construction. The video began circulating on social media last week, prompting the police to open a general inquiry file. After identifying the suspects, the police traced and apprehended them. The victim has been issued a Police Form 3 for a medical check-up. We would like to clarify that, contrary to some reports on social media, the individual seen torturing the victim in the video is not a police officer.

The two suspects have confessed to the actions portrayed in the video and have been charged with aggravated torture. We urge local security guards and bouncers to refrain from wearing attire resembling police uniforms, as this may lead to prosecution upon arrest”.
