A Sudanese national who has been conducting business in Uganda is currently in a huge loss after he was robbed of UGX 32m and other valuables worth millions of money by his driver and other accomplices around midnight on the 16/08/2023, along Kumi- Mbale highway in Atutur sub-county within Kumi District.


According to reports, the 35-year-old Sudanese national identified as Oga Emmanuel and his employee also identified as Okello David on Tuesday,15/08/2023, came to Bukedea district in Uganda to buy rice and maize and traveled with a motor vehicle registration number SSD 300D a Fuso Fighter white in color. 


Having reached Atutur sub-county in Kumi District, the driver stopped the vehicle to allegedly pee along the roadside as his boss sat in the motor vehicle when six unknown men came from the bush armed with knives and asked him for the money he had with him, whereupon they proceeded to force him to drink an unknown liquid packed in a mineral water bottle, then injected him with an unknown drug in the buttocks thus losing his consciousness.


By the time he woke up, his motor vehicle and all his belongings including the thirty-two million shillings, shirt, two phones, a laptop bag, and driver were all gone.


According to SP Ageca Oscar Gregg, the PRO East Kyoga in a press statement issued yesterday, they have registered a case vide SD ref 04/16/08/2023 and later Kumi CRB 524/2023 to investigate the matter and have noted with keen interest that the suspect Okello is born and raised in Bukedea district and was very much aware that his boss was in possession of cash money and as such connived with yet to be identified individuals. 


"The Uganda Police has backlisted the said vehicle and is actively hunting for Mr. Okello David, with his accomplices who are in the wind and as such we would be glad for any information provided directly to the police of Kumi district or through the Uganda police emergency Telephone numbers 999 and 112",


He further encouraged the business community to embrace e-commerce as this would strangle the opportunity availed by carrying cash money.
