During investigations, another two year old girl suspected to be stolen as well was found in the home of the suspect and efforts to reunite her with her parents are ongoing.
“The Police urges members of the public to be cautious of letting strangers into their homes because the least expected place is where you’re targeted from like in this case the couple was targeted from Victory Church in Kazo where they had gone for prayers on the 07/12/2022,” Kasasira said.
