Officials in the office of the Rwenzori Regional Criminal Investigations Department (CID) are on spotlight for allegedly promoting teenage marriages in the district of Ntoroko through soliciting bribes from suspected defilers.

Residents of Ntoroko district are accusing the Regional CID Department Rwenzori sitting in Fort Portal, of conniving with criminals who abducted a 14 year-old girl and forced her into marriage.

The victim is the daughter of one Nathan Nyarudindiri of Buganda cell, Bweramule Sub county Ntoroko district. She was reportedly abducted by unknown people from Isingiro district on 10th December, 2016.

It’s alleged the victim was taken to Isingiro for vacation holidays after completing her P.7 at Karugutu Infants Primary school.

Nyarudindiri the father says he reported the disappearance of his daughter to Ntoroko police where the suspects come from.

He adds that two of the suspects Patrick Kasongo and Nestori Baguma were arrested and confessed to have participated in abduction of girl and promised to lead police to the place where the girl is.

To his disappointment however, he claims, the suspects’ relatives and the L.CIII chairperson of Rwebisengo went to Fort Portal at the Regional CID’s office and blocked the case.

Nyarudindiri says he was surprised when the file was called from Ntoroko and taken at the Regional CID with the intention of killing the evidence and the case.

“Days later, the suspects were released on bond and to date the girl is still in captivity because the suspects who had confessed and promised to lead police to the place were left walk to scot free,” he said.

Olivia Mutamba Shabra the district councilor Ntoroko attributes the rampant cases of defilement and early marriages to police that connive with suspects.

She says as leaders they prioritize the promotion of the girl child but their efforts are hampered by corrupt police.

Olivia Mutamba accuses Regional Police especially CID department for acting on behalf of the magistrates to call off file of suspects yet the police had gathered enough evidence and information to recover the victim.

SP.Otim Bosco Oluru District Police Commander (DPC) Ntoroko confirmed that police registered the case of abduction but adds efforts are underway to recover the girl.

He explained that the suspects were released following orders from the Regional Police  for the file transfer, leading to halting the investigations.

Kato Joseph Rwenzori Regional Police Commander RPC on his part condemned as “horrible” the act of abduction of the minor and promised to handle the case so that all the aggrieved parties receive justice.
