Police in Greater Masaka have arrested over 152 suspects in an operation that was carried out over the weekend.
The operation follows growing fears of growing attacks in the greater Masaka area which covers the districts Ssembabule,Lwengo and Kalungu.
Those arrested are suspected to be members of the gangs that have been intimidating people and extorting money from them after threatening to attack and kill them.
Police spokesperson Emilian Kayima told journalists in Kampala this afternoon that the operations were intensified in addition to community policing in a bid to get rid of suspected criminals that have been giving people sleepless nights.
Kayima says that police received intelligence reports on Saturday, 18th November 2017 that prompted them to act immediately.
