Police have detonated an explosive device which was recovered at Botanical Gardens in Entebbe.

The explosive according to Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire was detonated after police led by the DPC of Entebbe Police Division was informed of a suspicious object near  Rolex Beach within the Botanical Gardens.

"Preliminary investigations suggest that the item is a non-spent ordnance buried underground for years, exposed due to soil erosion," Owoyesigyire said.

"In the interest of public safety, meticulous inquiries were initiated, and the scene was thoroughly processed and documented. Following the guidance of bomb experts, a controlled explosion was executed on-site, resulting in zero injuries or damages."

He  urged the public to remain vigilant and report any suspicious items promptly, facilitating swift police response and ultimately saving lives.
