A gang behind the kidnap and murder of social worker Maria Nagirinya and her driver, Ronald Kitayimbwa, have been arrested, police spokesman Fred Enanga has revealed.

Nagirinya was kidnapped from the gate to her home in Lungujja-Busega, killed, and her body dumped in Mukono district.

Mr Enanga said at a press conference at the police headquarters in Naguru that three prime suspects that orchestrated the kidnap were picked Sunday night by a joint team of investigators comprising of the Police’s Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID), Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) and the Internal Security Organisation (ISO).

Enanga said the suspects are currently held at CMI facility in Kireka – as security agencies ‘process them’ to end a one-week manhunt for the killers.

Last week, Police released closed circuit television (CCTV) footage that shows a man behind the steering wheel in Nagirinya’s car.

Enanga also told the press that the three main suspects were arrested in Natete and among them is the suspect captured on CCTV records driving Nagirinya’s car.

According to the police the sim card of the late Kitayimbwa was also recovered from the place where the three suspects were arrested.
