The Gushegu and Karaga District Police commands in the Northern Region are joining forces to track down armed robbers whose attack led to the death of four market women on the Gushegu-Karaga road.
Karaga District Police Commander ASP Emmanuel Botwe said preliminary investigations have provided police with some vital clues.
“We searched through the bush, we were able to retrieve two empty AK-47 ammunitions which they fired from the field,” ASP Botwe said.
He adds that together with the Gushegu police the highway robbers would soon be apprehended.
Four women died during a highway robbery on the Gushegu-Karaga road in the Northern Region, Sunday.
The women were among about a dozen others who were asked by the robbers to lie on the road after their cash and mobile phones were seized from them.
However, another vehicle which was being stopped by the robbers refused to do so and ran over the women, crashing four of them to death and leaving several others injured.
Sources say bodies of the four women littered the streets, while several others who sustained injuries were rushed to a hospital in Kraga for treatment.
