The OC Child and Family Protection Unit in Moroto Central Police Station, Joseph Oumo told Uganda Radio network on phone there were many cases recorded of defilement and he could not confirm whether this particular case had been recorded.
They had also formed committees of leaders registering the beneficiaries. But police raided the area early today and started hunting down all people who had illegally taken over the land. Business came to a standstill as forces pursued the encroachers in the areas of Bagaala, Gwafu and Nantaburirwa zones in Goma Division.
Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson says that by the time the police received the notification, it was too late to pursue the thugs. However, he adds, police personnel recovered two cartridges from the crime scene, and these were taken as exhibits as investigations into the matter continue.
