Former Lord Resistance Army-LRA Commander, Colonel Alfred Onen Kamdulu was on Wednesday acquitted of defilement by the High Court sitting in Gulu.
Prosecution alleged that on 10th of January, 2017, from Layibi Center in Gulu City, Onen Alfred Kamdulu, aged 45 defiled a 5-year old girl contrary to section 129 and 128 of the Penal Code Act.
However, Justice Philips Odoki while passing judgement noted that all the three essential ingredients of defilement which include evidence of sexual act, record that the accused person performed the act and proof of age were not presented to court by the prosecution.
Odoki said that all the witnesses based their testimonies on hearsay and that no evidence of sexual act was produced in court by the prosecution.
Justice Odoki also noted that the girl denied being defiled.
