Bits of clothes worn by the suspected attackers that were torn and trapped by the barbed wire.

Mr Mutimba says the motive of the suspected thugs is unknown since nothing was stolen from their offices.

“We suspect the attempted robbery is closely linked to the first attack where the thieves broke into the executive director’s office to steal some documents,” he added.
The offices were first attacked in May 2016. One of the security guards was killed in the attack and according to Mr Mutimba, police have never given them a report on their investigations nor have the suspects been brought to book.
