Samuel Bamwole, the Kamuli District National Resistance Movement-NRM Party Chairperson is in trouble after police picked him up last evening for allegedly defiling and impregnating a 13-year-old girl in August last year.
Michael Kasadha, the Busoga North Region police spokesperson confirmed Bamwole's arrest, explaining that investigations are ongoing.
Available information indicates that Bamwole tried luring the minor's family into negotiations in vain.
He reportedly convinced the victim to abort on January 15th, 2019 before he went into hiding. However, police tracked him and picked him up at Crescent medical clinic in Mpumudde in Kimaka division where he had taken the minor for a medical checkup.
The victim is said to be experiencing immense bleeding following the abortion. The victim's father said Bamwole has been threatening his daughter to withdraw her accusations.
Bamwole dismissed the defilement allegations leveled against him in an interview with journalists at a Kamuli based hotel before he was picked up. He said although the minor stays in the same neighborhood with him, he has never molested nor defiled her as is being claimed.
According to police, the suspect will appear in court once their inquiries are complete.
