Iganga: URA enforcement team seizes 8,000 pieces of assorted phones

The URA team in Iganga recently received information about a consolidation centre of a suspected smuggler who had stocked uncustomed phones. He was probably targeting to make bounty harvest; unfortunately, this did not go as planned.

He was surprised by an early morning visit at the premises where these goods had been hidden.

“On opening the gate, they were welcomed by unexpected guests [URA enforcement officers]. At the first glance one could think the premises had no valuables,” Winifred Kusiima, one of the officers part of deployment narrated.

However, the URA team checked everywhere especially the unfinished part of the residence and discovered several boxes. These were opened at the URA offices and following items were discovered;
