Authorities in the police have reported one of their vehicles which has gone missing, the Nile Post has learnt.
According to a message by the 999 unit, the Toyota Land Cruiser vehicle and its driver have been missing for a number of days.
“Theft of police motor vehicle UP 7267 Toyota Land Cruiser, blue in color. If seen, impound and arrest,” reads in part the message by the police 999 unit.
The missing vehicle according to police was being driven by detective sergeant Geoffrey Okayi in Palorinya refugee camp in Moyo district.
Police has asked whoever sees the vehicle and driver to impound it and arrest the occupants.
In December, a police bus went missing from the police headquarters in Kampala for a couple of days before being found in Mityana.
By the time it was found, the registration number plates had been plucked off and on interrogation, the driver admitted to driving it to his home village.
“The driver had just driven it to the village to enjoy Christmas with it and show off to village mates,” the then deputy police spokesperson Patrick Onyango said.
“The driver will be charged with disobedience of lawful orders before our disciplinary court,”Onyango added.
A Nile Post reader, Ronnie Hakiza later claimed that he had seen the bus loading people in Katanga on the very night it was allegedly stolen. He maintains that during the process, certain police officers were besides the bus guiding passengers onto the bus.
“But I saw that very bus loading people near Aryan Hostel(formerly Akamwesi) in Katanga, Wandegeya on that very night when you say it was stolen, and it had some police men watching the people embark onto the said bus,”Hakiza said.
