5 Arrested for Notorious Poaching
Police have arrested five suspects following an intelligence report about a gang of notorious poachers in areas of Nwoya and Oyam.
The CID Spokesperson Twiine Charles, says the poachers were allegedly in possession of so many illegal guns, that were not only used for poaching but also in robberies on Kampala-Pakwach-Arua Road, and some homesteads.
Twiine says one of the suspects, Ongomo Peter, a notorious poacher while being interrogated revealed that he bought one of the guns from a police officer whom he identified as Opiyo Andrew attached to Jinja Road Police Station, at UGX. 2m.
Although Opiyo denied the allegations, the investigators clearly established that the gun in question is a Police gun that was signed fraudulently by a hoax name at Jinja Road Police Station.
