Police have arrested a man who appeared in a video that has gone viral on social media, assaulting a woman.
The suspect, Benson Okongo was arrested following allegations of grievous bodily harm and domestic violence and is currently in custody at Natete Police station.
In the grisly clip captured by a concerned citizen, Okongo is seen beating his wife Nagawa sauda 36, a resident of Mutundwe Hill in Kigaga zone.
The incident happened on 14/08/2021. This prompted the Local authorities in the area to arrest the suspect and later took him to the Police station where he was detained.
Luke Owoyesigyire the Deputy PRO KMP says the file has since been forwarded to the Resident State Attorney (RSA) on allegations of grievous bodily harm. He will be subsequently arraigned in courts of law.
“We have in the past seen an increase in cases of domestic violence which unfortunately lead to death. We would like to inform the victims to report as soon as possible to our police station for proper case handling” Owoyesigyire said.
