Four top police bosses in connections with ALAM GROUP of companies Managing Director Abid Alam crimes have been arrested by Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema, Head State House Anti-corruption Unit.
In a Press Statement released on Saturday evening, Lt. Col. Edith Nakalema said, “As you may recall, on Thursday 9th April 2020, Mr. Abid Alam was arrested to commence investigations into the allegations of Aggravated torture, Gang rape and malicious damage to property.”
On Friday morning Abid was taken to Kassanda Police Station to write a Statement, however, officers released him which must have sabotaged Afande Nakalema’s work assigned to her by His Excellency the President.
A group of people attached to the Indian investor allegedly invaded the farm of one Arthur Mugyenyi, a resident of Bukoba village.
The area MP Simeo Nsubuga said during the attack, the assailants injured one Samuel Kyakabale, the cattle keeper of Mr Mugyenyi and gang-raped his wife as he and his children watched helplessly.
They also reportedly destroyed two houses, cut down three acres of banana plantation, before taking away 200 heads of cattle and 50 goats.
“Before this incident happened, Abid Alam, his son and his bodyguards spent the whole of Saturday April 4, 2020 at the farm planning how to commit the crimes and he left that place at 6pm, the MP said.
Lt. Nakalema said she has since received from Wamala region police commander over 27 cases pinning the businessman of many atrocities.
“What attracted my attention is what happened on Saturday night at a village called Bukompe in Kassanda District,” she said.
“Evil acts including gang rapping and attempted murder and I happened to hear from the a lady who was raped; it hurt me and it is not acceptable in this country”.
“When I received pictures like this, I called Mr. Abid Alam to ask him to record a statement,” Lt. Col.Nakalema said on the illegal destruction of homes and the cutting of plantations.
