A man, who is not a student of Makerere University, has lived in one of the students’ hall, planning a theft of computers from the campus. Now, Police at the campus has arrested the 22-year old man for stealing and vandalizing forty university computers.
Identified as Daniel Ogwal, the suspect was arrested after breaking into level four of the Block B building at the College of Computing and Information Sciences.
According to Cadet ASP Jude Eliphaz Masingano, the OC operations at Makerere Police station, police officers who were guarding the premises heard cracking noise in the lab and alerted their superiors who reinforced the deployment.
The suspect was arrested with computer parts comparable to 40 computer motherboards, and 25 RAM chips. He is currently being held at Makerere University Police.
Ogwal who confessed to not being a student of Makerere University, stays in room P-10 at University Hall, one of the halls of residence for male students.
The theft was equated to an incident last month in which unidentified thugs broke into the offices of the Imam of Makerere University Mosque and made off with two computers and 60,000 Shillings.
Ogwal is now suspected to have knowledge on who stole at the mosque since they all were looking for computer motherboards
