The Territorial Police in Aswa East Region and Pader district, has put up a serious manhunt for, Christopher Ali Bongonyonge, the LC 2 Chairman, for Acumu Ward, Acholi bar Town council in Pader district, for the Aggravated Defilement of his 15 year old, step-daughter, on the 7.08.2023, at around midnight.
The facts gathered indicate that the suspect, a step father to the victim returned home, picked a panga and started accusing her of indulging in love affairs, with boys in the village. He forced the victim to sleep in the same room with him. And at around midnight, he woke her up and tasked her, to lead him to her boy friend’s home. Along the way, the suspect dragged the victim to the nearby bush and defiled her, then returned home. The victim narrated her ordeal to her relatives and the matter reported to Acholibur CPS in Pader district.
We appeal to anyone with information about the whereabouts of the suspect to inform the nearest police unit. The panga, which was used to intimidate the victim, was recovered.
We continue to remind all guardians, parents and half-parents, that children look to them for their safety and well-being. It is therefore, disappointing, when this trust is broken by mentors and role models.
