Joseph Omoo, alias Ajep has been re-arrested.
Ajep escaped from custody on Friday last week from Lira referral hospital where he was receiving TB treatment. Two prison warders who were keeping watch of him at the hospital where arrested. The police were suspecting foul play in the way he escaped after the hand cups that Ajep was tagged with to the hospital bed was found opened.
Shortly Ajep called several radio stations on Monday last week accusing police of helping him escape. He said he’d not be re-arrested because he bribed the police UGX 9.7 million. An allegation the police denied.
Meanwhile, the latest we’re receiving is that he has been rearrested by the police in Mbale. The North Kioga Police Spokesperson David Ongom Mudong confirmed to us this afternoon that they have in their custody Joseph Omoo alias Ajep. He however failed to give more details saying he’d give them later.
Ajep faces counts of simple and aggravated robbery. Police alleges that he masterminded a number of robberies of boda boda motorcycles in the town.
