Rukungiri Police nets four over Mobile Money fraud.

Rukungiri: Police in Rukungiri district have arrested three men and a mother of two children over mobile money fraud.

The four whose identities were concealed not to jeopardize the investigations were on Wednesday 06th March 2024 apprehended by a team of police officers led by the DISO Rukungiri from Nyabikuku village in Rushasha parish, Nyakagyeme sub-county, Rukungiri district.

The Officer in Charge (OC) at Rukungiri Central Police Station ASP Micheal Kisakye told our reporter that the four were identified by the victim of their theft act, Gumenawe Lovian from Rushasha Nyakagyeme sub-county whom they defrauded on Tuesday 05th March 2024 and disappeared with unspecified amount of money.

It is alleged that while Gumenawe was in Nyabikuku a day after defrauding her, she encountered the suspects and made an alarm that attracted the public who arrested them and beaten to pulp. They were however rescued by police operatives before being lynched by the angry Mob.

ASP Kisakye explained that the four are still in police custody. He called upon victims of these fraudsters to come forward and avail them with more information as investigations continue.

He urged the public, especially the mobile money agents to be vigilant.
