KAMPALA – Kampala Metropolitan Police(KMP) have on December 10 arrested two men from Kibuye, a suburb in Kampala City, on charges of obtaining money by false pretense.
According to police, the arrest stemmed from a complaint by a victim at Kireka Police Station.
“On September 16, 2019, an unknown person called the victim with a deal to sell him goods. The victim sent the money amounting to Two million shillings (2m), but the goods were not sent. When he called the mobile phone number again to find out why the goods were not delivered, it was no longer available. He later reported a case to the police and the hunt started,” reads the statement in part.
Police says on the arrest of Moses Kigozi and his colleague, a search was carried out at his home recovering fake currency notes, over 100 sim cards, and other documents.
“It has also been established that the group has been calling the unsuspecting public giving them false information alleging they have won lotteries and goods, when they receive the money, they don’t deliver the goods.”
The suspects are currently detained at Kira Division Police Station.
