The territorial police of Katwe will today, 05/11/2021 charge one Nelson Mayanja in the court of law on allegations of cyber harassment and offensive communication.
It is alleged that the suspect has been harassing his 28-year-old ex-girlfriend (names withheld), threatening to release her nude videos on the Internet if she doesn’t get back to him.
According to Asp Luke Owoyesigyire the deputy PRO Kampala Metropolitan police, the suspect had previously sent nude videos and pictures to the victim’s father.
“Upon his arrest, he confessed to the crime. His phone was exhibited by our forensic analysts and essential evidence has since been collected. The evidence is very crucial in the prosecution of the suspect” Owoyesigyire says.
He added that more charges are also being considered against him after the phone examination and he was set to be arraigned before Makindye Magistrate Court at midday today.
Owoyesigyire informed members of the public to avoid situations like this and if unavoidable report to the police for investigations.
The Directorate of forensics services has since built capacities into that field of investigation.
