Security Patrolling Streets of Gulu

The Police in Kitgum District is holding two Uganda People’s Defense Forces soldiers on allegations of mounting illegal roadblocks within Kitgum Municipality.

The soldiers were arrested on Saturday night in Pandwong Division where they had reportedly mounted a separate roadblock to extort money from unsuspecting road users during curfew time.

The Police, however, declined to divulge details of their particulars for fear of jeopardising investigations.

Robert Oken, the Officer in Charge of Criminal Investigations at Kitgum Central Police station says that the suspects are detained at the police station pending further investigation into their alleged conduct.

Kitgum residents and leaders have been raising numerous complaints of extortion and harassment by security personnel during curfew hours. The curfew runs from 7 p.m. to 6; 30 a.m.
