Bebe Cool narrowly survives being shot (VIDEO)

Entertainment -->

Musician Moses Ssali alias Bebe Cool has claimed that he was on Saturday, nearly shot by a yet to be identified man he says had knocked his car.

In a Facebook post shared on Sunday morning, the singer narrated that the incident ensued when the man knocked his car, and upon complaining, pulled out his gun.

“This man wanted to shoot me after knocking my car, as a lot is still unveiling, but we managed to disarm him and he was arrested by a police officer,” the singer stated.

Following the scuffle, the singer alleges that the man was later arrested and taken to Ntinda Police Station where he was also asked to go and record a statement.

However, upon reaching the station, Bebe says he was shocked to find all the police officers there, rounded off and put on gunpoint adding that the same men tried to shoot him too.

“On arrival at the station, his colleagues had arrived at the station there by rounding it off and had put the police officers at gun point .They commanded me to vacate the premises and nearly shot at me.I had to run to my car and the driver took off.” Bebe Cool stated.

Bebe said he has already made calls to the responsible persons he believes are the bosses of the man that knocked his car.

This is the not the first time Bebe Cool has been involved in a shooting incident.

In 2010, shortly after performing at American singer R.Kelly’s show in Kampala, Bebe Cool was shot in the legs by security officers following a heated argument.

During the scuffle, two Bebe Cool’s guards and a Special Police Constable, were also injured.

The singer was immediately taken to Nsambya hospital for treatment before later being flown to the United States where he spent months receiving treatment.

The current development comes against the backdrop of increasing cases of army personnel and armed people drawing guns in public during disputes.

Barely two months ago, a military police officer driving a green vehicle registration number D02DF08P assaulted a traffic officer near Mukwano Mall along Kyaggwe road. The soldier had accused the traffic officer of failure to clear way for them.

Similarily, in 2019, a military escort of then Uganda’s ambassador to Burundi, Major General Matayo Kyaligonza appeared in a viral video manhandling a female traffic officer.

In all incidents, UPDF apologised and promised the offenders would be punished. However, incidents of men in uniform behaving badly on public roads continue.
