Security personnel in Otuke District have arrested four people for allegedly defrauding the Community.

The four led by Monica Adongo were moving with a letter purportedly from State House allowing them to operate as a Savings and Credit Cooperative Societies- SACCO.  The others are Robinah Akello, a resident of Aloi Sub County, Geoffrey Apello of the same area and Richard Ojok of Adwari Corner, who also claims to be the Sacco coordinator for Otuke.

Christopher Omara, the Otuke RDC, says that he received an invitation letter signed by Adongo to attend a meeting but upon consultation, he realized that the Sacco does not exist in the area.

Omara says that the four were also collecting 10, 000 Shillings from the community members.

He said the team claims to be operating in the districts of Dokolo, Apac, Kwania, Oyam, Moroto, Kotido and Gulu City warning the community to step up vigilance.

In December last year, security personnel in Kwania arrested six suspected fraudsters for extorting 12.5 Million Shillings from some members of the public in the guise of offering them jobs.

Edith Basalirwa, Kwania DPC asked the public to always report in time, the unscrupulous people. 

According to the 2019 Annual Police Crime Report, North Kyoga registered the highest numbers of fraud cases in the country in 2019.
