What could have been business as usual in Moroto town in Uganda turned out to be a nasty scene of action after over 50 inmates broke loose and pulled a prison break.
During their escape, the prisoners “walked” away with over 36 guns that they turned to be their arsenal after they were confronted by the Ugandan forces.
Reported by the Uganda People Defence Forces (UPDF) third division spokesman, Peter Mugisa, he said the inmates run towards the Mountain forest where they took a refugee in the forest.
The tussle went for some time and unfortunately, one police officer was shot dead.
Moroto residents could be seen from far enjoying the encounter without any help. They were as well shocked by the incident.
Since the time of escapee i.e Wednesday in the evening, non of the inmates during their pursue was arrested.
