Police have arrested 14 suspects and impounded 45 motorcycles in connection to the attacks on the offices of Boda boda 2010 offices in different parts of Kampala and Wakiso Districts. 



Boda boda riders from rival factions raided the offices of Boda boda 2010 in Wakaliga, Katwe, Makindye, Natete, Nsangi and Kyengera among others this morning and destroyed property.


 
They were celebrating the arrest of Abudallah Kitatta, the chairman Boda boda 2010, his brother Huzair Kiwalabye and 26 others for their alleged involvement in the kidnap and killing of Francis Ekalugar, the former accountant of Case Clinic on January 02, 2018.

 
Police spokesperson, Emillian Kayima, says they were able to pick up 14 suspects and impounded 45 motorcycles in connection to the attacks. According to Kayima, the attackers abandoned their motorbikes while running away from being arrested.

 
"We hope to get the suspects who left their motorcycles behind so they can answer charges of mob justice. We are still investigating and we will soon find them, "Kayima said. 



Prior to the arrests, rival boda boda riders accused Kitatta and his team of mistreatment and torture.  Kitatta was believed to be untouchable because of his connections to the Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura.
 
Kayihura was behind the establishment of Boda boda 2010 and is the Patron of the Association. He has openly been quoted in the media for thanking Boda boda 2010 for breaking the walk to work protests.
