Suspected criminals sent the Lira Resident City Commissioner (RCC) 23 urine-filled bottles packaged and labeled as consignment from the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM).
The RCC, Lawrence Egole, told Daily Monitor that unidentified people sent the package in a card box on Tuesday at around 4pm.
The package was, however, delivered to the RCC by Santos Okwir Obote, the LCI chairman of Angwetangwet ‘A’ cell in Lira City East Division.
Okwir told police that unknown people left a package at his home while he was away, with instructions that he should deliver it to the RCC.
Okwir said he took the item to Angwetangwet police post where he was advised to take it to Lira Central Police Station.
On arrival at Lira Central Police Station, the LC1 chairman was further advised to take the package to the supposed recipient.
Egole said he was not in office when he was contacted about the consignment which was supposed to be delivered to him.
Accordingly, he instructed the City Internal Security Officer (CISO) to open it, only to 23 mineral water bottles filled with urine.
On the box, there were three telephone numbers which were later switched off.
The RCC said this could be the work of suspected criminals who are not happy with an operation he launched on Good Friday to rid the city of criminals, who have been terrorising dwellers.
So far, over 100 suspects have been arrested and waiting to be charged in the court.
