Police in Kayunga has arrested and detained four passengers found using an ambulance as a common means of transport.
Their arrest came after police got a notification that an Ambulance reg No UBA 564P, was moving at break neck speed from Kampala to Kayunga with no patients.
According to ASP Hellen Butoto, the police PRO, Sezibwa Region, law enforcers tried to stop it at various checkpoints but all efforts were futile as the driver adamantly refused to stop,and/or adhere to traffic calls.
“We intercepted the Ambulance at Ntenjeru trading centre, along Kayunga-Bbaale road in Kayunga Town Council. The driver fled from the scene, after he was found transporting passengers.” She revealed.
The four have been charged with various offences including mis-use of a vehicle as other investigations continue.
