Police has confirmed the arrest of six security officers who stormed Ntinda Police Station and escalated the Bebe Cool shooting saga last weekend.
They are currently detained at Railway Grounds Police Station on allegations of threatening violence and aiding the escape of a suspect from police custody.
Kampala Metropolitan deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire said that the alleged altercation between Bebe Cool and Captain Robert Namara occurred in the parking yard of Peer Lounge Bar in Ntinda.
Owoyesigyire explained that the conflict arose after a minor accident.
“Preliminary information gathered indicates that while trying to get parking at the bar, the officer brushed Bebe Cool’s vehicle which forced the latter to come out of the vehicle and a disagreement ensued,” said Owoyesigyire.
He further disclosed that they have retrieved the CCTV footage and it is being reviewed to establish whether a gun was drawn as alleged by Bebe Cool.
“We are also looking into the allegation of the physical exchange between the two parties, which could have attracted other friends.”
