Three private security guards in Busia District attached to Accurate Security Group are on the run after allegedly torturing and robbing their Asian bosses of over Shs50m.
The victims are employees of Busia Allied Sugar, an isolated factory 20 kilometres along the Busia-Tororo Road, which distills and packs spirits.
The guards, who had been hired to provide security services at the factory, are said to have turned against their bosses on Saturday night, leaving them with multiple defensive head and hand wounds.
Mr David Banuli, a worker at the factory, told Daily Monitor from Masafu Hospital where the Asians are admitted, that they had left in the evening, leaving the guards watching over the factory and their bosses.
He was, however, surprised to report to work the next day and learn that the guards had turned against their bosses, tortured and robbed them.
“We came in the morning and found the gate still closed and when we scaled the fence, we found our bosses beaten and locked in separate rooms,” Mr Banuli said.
