Four ruthless men filmed while brutalizing an unidentified man on Thursday are unlikely to be part of the police, the force’s spokesperson has said .
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesman Luke Owoyesigire, “Police doesn’t use public transportation vehicles while carrying out it’s operations and I doubt it strongly because police don’t use taxis.”
A video clip filmed by bystanders shows four armed men in plain clothes battering an unidentified man before arresting him at Portal Avenue near Christ the King Church in Kampala at around lunch time.
The man is gun-butted in the chest and stomach, and dragged before he is shoved into a waiting commuter taxi number UAF 325S. Still inside the taxi the man could be heard wailing for his life as it drives off.

“Men we see in the footage were not its officers. Our officers have discipline and can never do such thing,” Oweyesigire added.
