CID Calls Ugandans to Pick 10,000 National IDs Found with Robber

ACP Clare Nabakka deputy police spokesperson

The Criminal Investigations Directorate (CID) has called upon Ugandans who lost their National IDs to visit its headquarters at Kibuli to check whether they are among the more than 10,722found with suspected robber Hakim Terwane alias Umaru.

Terwane was arrested in August this year during NEMA operations against wetlands encroachers in Lubigi swamp, Nansana Municipality, in Wakiso district.

NEMA that was backed by Environmental Protection Police Unit (EPPU) were shocked when thousands of National IDs were found packed in sacks inside Terwane’s makeshift.

Upon arrest, CID took over the investigations to establish circumstances under which Terwane got the National IDs including 68 passports and 237 driving permits.

Assistant Commissioner of Police – ACP Clare Nabakka, the deputy police spokesperson, said so far one National ID is linked to a 2018 robbery registered in Kibuki district under CRB 205/2018.

But since Terwane has declined to reveal how he got these documents, CID believes if Ugandans go to pick their documents, they will be able to tell circumstances under which such vital documents were lost from them.

Police have identified the victim who was attacked and robbed by Terwane in Kibuku district as Moreen Katumwebaze.

A number of people have been attacked, robbed and injured on streets or even they are on motorcycles in Kampala and other parts of the country. Security suspects that these are the victims whose documents ended up being Terwane’s makeshift.
