The Rukungiri officer in charge of criminal investigations intelligence department (OC CIID), prostate D/AIP Michael Ogwal, medications has been arrested over misuse of office.

Ogwal was on Monday arrested in the evening hours from Rukungiri by police from Professional Standard Unit (PSU) headquarters Kampala on allegation that together with his investigating officer one D/AIP Frank Turamye, he deliberately mishandled and poorly investigated a murder case.

Elly Maate the Kigezi regional police publicist confirmed the arrested of Ogwal saying that he is currently being detained at Ntungamo police station over allegations of mismanagement of a murder case CRB 990/2016.

On 18th May 2016, a middle aged man yet to be identified was murdered and his body dumped in a culvert along the Rukungiri Ishaka high way near Kagogo coffee factory within Rukungiri Municipality.

Maate says relevant information came out but was neglected by the arrested officers.

This comes weeks after the Kigezi regional CIID chief Suleiman Kabuye was suspended by the Inspector General of Police for mismanaging his office.
