The State House Anti-Corruption Unit working together with the Directorate of CID police officers has arrested four officers attached to Kasanda district, Wamala region.
This follows the arrest of businessman Abid Alam on Thursday 9th on allegations of aggravated torture, gang rape and malicious damage of property.
These are accused for allegedly mismanaging case files, conspiracy to defeat justice and professional misconduct in relation to cases reported against Abid Alam.
The officers are; Regional CID officer Wamala, SP Wanyama Wilber Ostin, DPC Kasanda, ASP Owellano Daniel, OCCID Kasanda, ASP Beitera Peter and the In charge CID Records Sgt. Azale.
The Unit head Lt Col Edith Nakalema handed Abid Alam over to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) for questioning into alleged crimes he committed last Saturday at Bukoba and Bukompe villages, Nalutuntu Parish, Nalutuntu Sub County in Kassanda South Constituency.
The group of people attached to him gang raped a woman, destroyed banana plantations, robbed property and battered residents of Bukoba and Bukompe villages, among others.
A group of people attached to the Indian investor allegedly invaded the farm of one Arthur Mugyenyi, a resident of Bukoba village.
The area MP Simeo Nsubuga said during the attack, the assailants injured one Samuel Kyabale, the cattle keeper of Mugyenyi and gang-raped his wife as he and his children watched helplessly.
They also reportedly destroyed two houses, cut down three acres of banana plantation, before taking away 200 heads of cattle and 50 goats.
“Before this incident happened, Abid Alarm, his son and his bodyguards spent the whole of Saturday April 4, 2020 at the farm planning how to commit the crimes and he left that place at 6pm,” the MP said.
