Police in Mukono has apprehended Asumani Owere, 30, a boda boda rider, resident of Kitega Village, Kawolo Sub County in Buikwe district for allegedly targeting his unsuspecting female passengers and raping them in isolated areas after putting them on knife point.

Owere is also alleged to have robbed his victims of their belongings after raping them and his arrest followed community initiatives to identify the criminal, according to the police.

Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan deputy Police spokesperson revealed that seven rape victims have reported cases at police where two of the victims have positively identified Owere as their attacker.

Owoyesigyire said that the community members arrested Owere as he was attempting to rape a female victim in a bush at Nakapinyi Village in Nama Sub County in Mukono district.

According to Owoyesigyire, Asumani has since confessed to only two cases but the police spokesperson says they have recorded statements from the victims as investigations continue.
