ENTEBBE. Police in Mpala, Entebbe, Wakiso district are investigating reports of anonymous letters containing life threatening messages that were dropped in the area recently.

The content of the letters demanded for a specific amount of money warning those who fail to adhere to the demands to brace up for the worst consequences soon as they launch the attacks.

“This alarmed the area police prompting for a community security meeting where area police commanders pledged a joint investigation into the matter,” Police have said in a statement.

The Officer in Charge Mpala Police Station, ASP. Joseph Sekitoleko pledged total commitment and treatment of the matter with urgency in order to avert any possible attacks.

He sensitized the residents on kidnaps and ways of fighting this spiking crime trend.

He cited the public ignorance on anti-kidnapping measures as being one of the factors encouraging the vice and promised regular awareness programs.

ASP. Sekitoleko urged parents and guardians to ensure that young children leaving schools for home are picked and accompanied by trusted adults during evening hours.

He also called upon business persons to ensure they use safe routes and means of transport when getting to work or going home after work.

This comes a month when the same incident was reported in Kihande Cell, Masindi Municipality after  the same letters were dropped in the area early last month. 

Security was however stepped up and no attacks were reported in the area.
