Entebbe Municipality DPC Godfrey Ninsiima who was accompanied by the Nakiwogo OC Station Kiconco Rwanks disclosed that the police has gathered enough intelligence reports indicating that there are two criminal gangs, “Swagger Attackers” and “Cockroaches” comprised of primary school going juveniles who are causing havoc in the areas of Lugonjo Nakiwogo. Kiconco revealed that the groups are being used by other notorious fellas to break into people’s houses to rob items and property that can easily be sold for quick cash. Some of the juvenile delinquents have been arrested on several occasions and arraigned in court but have been acquitted due to lack of evidence.
