Gulu, (UG): A ruthless police officer in Gulu City, Northern Uganda is currently under detention on allegations of defiling two underage girls of 12 and 13 years respectively.
The suspect (whose details remained concealed), aged 36, is alleged to have lured the two siblings to sleep with them in a distressing incident which occurred last Monday, October 23.
“As the victims were waiting for a motorcycle to transport the sweet potatoes home, the suspect called them to his house and locked them inside. He ordered the 13-year-old to climb the bed and defiled her in front of the young sibling. After that, he turned against the young sister aged 12 and ordered her to climb the bed and also defiled her,” The police spokesperson Mr Fred Enanga revealed while addressing journalists yesterday in Kampala.
Enanga explained that when the matter came to the attention of the police, action was immediately taken leading to the arrest of the suspect who now faces charges of “double defilement of the two siblings.”
The Police mouthpiece condemned the manner in which their officer, who is a public official, behaved and urged parents to train their young children especially girls in child resistance skills.
“For example, why would a stranger call you and take you to their house? When you are in the house, you are in a very vulnerable situation that can cost your life. The children should learn to be assertive and always cry out for help so that they don’t fall victim,” Mr Enanga said.
“Officers are public officials who are expected to be role models to young girls but instead guardians and role models are the ones victimizing young girls. We strongly condemn such behaviour,” he added.
