Police officer in trouble for shooting one person during illegal enforcement of COVID-19 SOPs

The Police in Pader District have arrested one of their own, a special police constable for alleged illegal enforcement of COVID -19 standard operating procedures.

The suspect is SPC 2818 Patrick Malimu attached to Pajule Police Station in Pader District. According to David Mudong Ongom, the Aswa River Region Police Spokesperson, Malimu was arrested on Saturday afternoon after he and another police deserter identified as Richard Oyet went to Amoko –Lagwayi East Village in Pajule Town Council to enforce COVID -19 guidelines without orders from his seniors.

While carrying out the illegal act, Malimu and Oyet allegedly arrested one person for not wearing a facemask, something that stirred a scuffle between the duo and the crowd at the scene.

Mudong says Malimu discharged one bullet which injured one person identified as Sisto Oyet aged 53, in the right foot.

Malimu took off immediately after the incident, leaving behind Oyet in the hands of mob who beat him into coma. He and Odong have been admitted to Pajule Health Center IV for treatment.

Malimu reported himself to Pajule Police Station where he was immediately arrested and charged with attempted murder of Sisto Odong, an offense contrary to Section 204 (a&b) of the Penal Code Act.
