A two time escapee in Apac district is facing the full wrath of the law after a grade one magistrate sentenced him to four years imprisonment.

 

While Felix Ongom, 30, expected to be sentenced for repeatedly escaping from Police custody, he found himself facing an extra charge of escaping with government property.

 

The government property was pair of handcuffs he escaped with during his second bid for freedom.

 

Presiding magistrate Robert Mukanza sentenced Ongom to 54 months for escaping with this government property. He said Ongom had violated section 22 of the penal code act.

 

Ongom 30, a resident Anywartgiki cell, Atigolwok parish in Chegere was first arrested first in July and detained at Chegere outpost over assault. This is where he later escaped from detention.

On Monday 13th August, he was re-arrested slated to appear before the district grade one magistrate court on Tuesday.

But as he was being brought to appear before magistrate, he again managed to escape from his jailors. He was promptly re-arrested.  

He has been sent to Atopi government prison in Apac district.
