The Deputy Inspector General of Police, Maj General Paul Lokech has rubbished claims by Aruu County MP Odonga Otto that he is being witch-hunted.
Odonga Otto was recently arrested by police, before being arraigned in court and later remanded to Gulu over charges related to assault and malicious damage of property.
Following his arrest, Otto, who lost the parliamentary seat in the just-concluded elections to Dr. Christopher Komakech accused the deputy police chief of being behind the move to arrest and arraign him in court.
On Tuesday, the vocal legislator was released from prison on bail and re-echoed the same statements.
However, the deputy police chief laughed off the claims by Odonga Otto saying he has no reason for witch-hunt against him.
The deputy police chief said whereas he has been a subject of ridicule by Odonga Otto mainly on social media, he never acted.
