The Aswa regional police authority jointly with Omoro Territorial Police is closely following up on an alleged incident of Kidnap of Owani Dick Denis, the FDC Candidate in the upcoming Omoro by-election which has since gone viral on social media.
The candidate claims he was allegedly abducted by occupants in an unknown vehicle who were trailing him. He claims they caught up with him from Adida village in Omoro District but later abandoned him at Corner Kamdini in Oyam District.
We do take matters of threats to life including abductions seriously. Our territorial teams in Aswa and North Kyoga have interested themselves in the matter and opened inquiries to help prove or disprove the allegations.
It should be noted that this is a serious matter and the police have subjected it to investigations.
We would therefore want to urge the complainant in the above-alleged incident to cooperate with the h police with all the necessary information.
We further wish to inform the public that the complainant in this alleged incident is out of danger and headed for nomination.
