The State led by Terrence Mukuze said police are keen to take the accused persons for indications, identification parade and investigate where the stolen goods were sold.

“Police, represented by the investigating officer are applying for a warrant of further detention in order to complete their investigations since the normal detention is to lapse by 28th of April,” said Mukuze before the court.
