Businessman rejects partial refund of his 17 Million stolen by Kireka police station officers

BY: Eyalama In Business On

Businessman Michael Omoit, has rejected a Shs 5 million refund from Kireka based police officers who stole his money which was collected as exhibits on April 4.

Omoit accuses Kireka police station commander, Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Nicholas Muyonjo and his two juniors; Sgt Joshua Jagule and Sgt William Kawooya of stealing and sharing his money amounting to $4,700 (about Shs 17 million).

The trio, a fortnight ago, asked to be released from Kira Division police station where they had been detained on the orders of the Police Professional Standards Unit (PSU). As a pre-condition for their release, the officers promised to refund the money.

However, Omoit now says that the accused have since failed to raise the full amount and are trying to convince him, through his lawyer, to first take Shs 5m. On April 10, Omoit petitioned the Kampala Metropolitan Criminal Investigations (CID) commander to force the police officers to refund his money. The petition was copied to the inspector general of police, the deputy IGP, Internal Affairs minister and Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) commander.

Muyonjo and his juniors had reportedly denied the charges before the Professional Standards Unit but accepted after the complainant presented Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage from Palz Food Court in Kireka from where the trio shared the said money.

Omoit said Kira Division CID commander has already sent back the file to Director of Public Prosecution (DPP) which had been returned to fill the few investigations gaps. The accused according to Omoit are likely to appear before the court next week.
