A Pakistan National who was arrested inside Hoima Sugar limited factory in Kikuube on Wednesday has been charged with criminal trespass.
The suspect identified as Ali Asim 23 years of age allegedly gained entry into the sugar factory premises situated in Kiswaza village in Munteme parish Kizirafumbi Sub County posing as an expert, but the factory management became suspicious of him.
Security personnel manning the factory tasked him to identify himself, but when they realized that he was not a worker at the factory. He was immediately arrested and taken to Kikuube central police station for further interrogations.
Asim told detectives at Kikuube police that he travelled with his uncle from Kampala by Taxi and spent a night in Hoima city and later headed to Hoima Sugar factory premises using a Boda Boda. He is said to have been in the company of another person who has since been on the run.
However, the suspect claims that his uncle whose names could not be revealed was in Kikuube district but he didn’t know the specific place.
According to Julius Hakiza the Albertine Region Police Spokesperson, police has preferred criminal trespass charges against the Pakistan national for allegedly entering the premises of the factory.
