Kampala Metropolitan Police South headquartered in Katwe have arrested a man who has been masquerading as a police officer.
The man under detention has been identified as Rujeru Frank Sabiti alias D/ASP Kajjeru Frank Sabiti.
“He has been detained for allegedly making documents without authority and impersonation,” said deputy spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire.
According to police, the suspect was arrested yesterday after a one Wovugira Emma Yonah went to Kampala Metropolitan Police, South headquarters to consult on what action can be taken on an officer who has failed to fulfill his promise.
Wovugira told police that the suspect went to him on June 5, 2020, and asked to hire his car UBD 662 C TX.
He left his warrant card (identity card) behind as security. He hired the car at Shs 130,000 per day. He, however, failed to fulfill his obligation prompting the victim to report to police.
Owoyesigire said that upon receiving the warrant card, the detectives consulted Police Headquarters to verify the authenticity of the document.
It was established that such a name and file number don’t exist.
The force number on the card however, was for a Police Constable attached to another unit.
The file has been forwarded to DPP for perusal as inquiries into the matter continue.
