KAMPALA. Two suspects have been arrested for threatening Inspector General of Government (IGG) Irene Mulyagonja.
Deputy Police Spokesperson Patrick Onyango says the suspects; Ben Sebuguzi and Lillian Mukiibi were arrested on Thursday following a complaint by Mulyagonja that they had threatened to harm her if she did not release to them information in possession of the IGG.
“Using their illegal organization, the duo has been using illegal methods to obtain money and information from key personalities in the country. The most recent incident, they demanded information in possession of the IGG, Ms Irene Mulyagonja to be released to them, if not they would do something she will regret,” Onyango stated in a press release. He revealed that the two run an illegal organization called Youth Power Uganda.
The suspects are being detained at the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) headquarters in Kireka. The police have preferred charges of threatening violence, blackmail and extortion against the duo.
“They are likely to appear in court next week,” Onyango said. He added that the police are hunting for other members of “this illegal organization.”
Onyango is urging members of the public who have any information in regard to this “illegal group” to report it at CID headquarters Kibuli.
