“The bodies are still kept in the city mortuary, but we are yet to identify them,” Owoyesigire said.

The police are stuck with the bodies of two armed men who were shot dead in the city suburb of Bweyogerere as they attempted to rob business woman, Josephine Agaba Wabyoona.

Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire said they are yet to identify the bodies of the suspected robbers, who have no identification documents.

"The bodies are still kept in the city mortuary, but we are yet to identify them," Owoyesigire said.

Owoyesigire said they would have used a motorcycle the deceased used for executing the crime to identify them, but they got information that it belonged to a boda-boda cyclist whom they put at gun point to ride them.

"Our investigation revealed that the motorcycle they boarded belonged to a boda-boda cyclist whom they put at gun point," he said.

However, Owoyesigire declined to disclose the name of the boda-boda cyclist, saying it would jeopardize investigations.

He revealed that they recovered sh180, 000, two knives and masks, SMG gun with cartridges and two mobile phones from the deceased, which he said could help them identify them.

When asked whether they could not identify them using their cellphones, Owoyesigire said their phones have been forwarded to experts.

Owoyesigire further told NewVision that Agaba has since been discharged from Gwatiro Hospital in Bweyogerere, Wakiso district where she has been admitted.

When contacted, a source close relative, who preferred anonymity revealed that Agaba has slightly improved.

"I cannot say much, but she was discharged from the hospital and can ably speak. She will be fine shortly," the source said.

However, the source revealed that although Agaba had over sh1m, the Police managed to recover only sh180,000.

"She had sh150,000 in her wallet, sh500,000 in shop safe and over sh1m she had picked from the bank, but they only gave her sh180,000. We are now wondering who took the rest of the money yet the robbers were killed," she said.

On March 1, 2018 at about 2:00pm, Agaba was attacked by the robbers at her shop and stabbed her.

According to the Police, Agaba had just returned to her shop after making transaction in the bank when she was attacked.

The gunmen allegedly ordered her to surrender the money she had before stabbing her.

Agaba was rescued by officers boarding a patrol police van after she made an alarm calling for her rescue.
