A woman in Katabi Town Council has today survived being kidnapped by assailants driving a black Toyota Ipsum with tinted glasses.
According to a recording obtained from the police, the lady slipped through the hands of the yet to be identified goons who had already captured another woman and tied a cloth around her face.
The recording by Police Spokesperson Asan Kasingye indicates that the attackers attempted to abduct the young lady at the former Kobil filling Station at Abaita Ababiri in Katabi where several women have so far been murdered.
“We have received credible information that this morning, two men; one dressed in black attire and another putting on a red shirt and a black jacket and travelling in a black numberless Ipsum vehicle with tinted glasses have attempted to kidnap a young lady who has come to the police and given us this information,” said Kasingye in a voice recording obtained by Kampala Post.
“In the vehicle, there was already another lady putting on a short black skirt whose face was tied with a piece of cloth,” added Kasingye.
“These people are a danger to the lady who was in the vehicle and obviously to other ladies and members of the public,” said Kasingye who asked whoever has information to report the vehicle to the nearest police station.
Kasingye requests any member of the public who can help police identify the black Ipsum to call, 0714667710, 0714667759, 0714667808, or toll free 0800199099, 0800300100.
So far, 23 women have been killed in Entebbe and Nansana municipality all in Wakiso district.
Last month, the Inspector General of Police, Gen Kale Kayihura, attributed the women murders to ritual sacrifices. The police chief said a suspect connected to the murders confessed to having killed at least eight women on orders of a business tycoon in Nansana for his ritual satisfaction to get more wealth.
Most of the bodies are found naked, raising suspicion that they are first raped before they are killed.
