The Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence (CMI) claim to have put behind bars two senior Police Officers from Isingiro District in western Uganda, over a questionable release of 13 Rwandans whom CMI believes they entered illegally in Uganda.
Chimperports broke the story CMI are holding the DPC Isingiro District, Superintendent of Police Richard Erimu Okiror and the OC CIID Isingiro,ASP Charles Ndamanyire, since Good Friday, March 30,2018.
It is alleged the duo were taken to Kampala and never returned to their work stations.
Security sources have told Chimpreports 13 Rwandan nationals entered the country via Kisoro, and were arrested by Police upon reaching Mbarara.
Police officers reportedly handed the group to the immigration office in Mbarara, pending verification of their travel documents and ascertaining their motives in Uganda.
Even though ,source says, the documents of the Rwandans were found to be authentic, and these were immediately set free, CMI officials learnt later that the group was in the country illegally and for unknown reasons.
Later,two police officers were summoned to clarify what grounds they released these Rwandans.
UPDF spokesperson, Brig Richard Karemire said he was aware of the arrest but would not divulge further details.
“They Police officers are still helping us with investigations. That is all I can tell you” he told the website
The incident come after recent several arrests and torturing of Rwandans by CMI accusing them espionage and involvement in terrorist activities in Uganda.
