It also arrested one Stephen Odokorach and Bosco Ayella who claimed the timbers belonged to them and were selling it to an army officer they refused to name by press time.

Odokorach who is the Municipal Council Youth chairperson told the press that as the youth, they were only trying to make a living by selling timber but on the contrary they were thrown behind bars.

When Chimpreports contacted the Aswa Regional Police spokesperson, Patrick Okema, he confirmed the development and said police had been following the vehicle right from Paicho until they arrested them.

“So far the UPDF don’t have any documents concerning the timbers therefore the four suspects are still under our custody,” said Okema on Tuesday.

“The vehicle is still parked at Gulu Central Police Station as investigations go on, but they will be charged under the Forestry Law,” Okema told Chimpreports.

Meanwhile, efforts to get a comment from Lieutenant Isaac, the 4th Division spokesperson on whether the mission of timber cutting was for the Army or just individual benefits proved futile as by press time.

The case was registered at Gulu Central Police Station as SD99/02/07/2013
