A 30 year–old suspected female witch is in trouble after being arrested by Police in Gulu City on charges of being a public nuisance.
The suspect is identified as Stella Auma, a resident of Koch –Goma Sub –County in Nwoya District who was caught “casting a spell” at Kaunda Ground in Gulu City on Sunday night. Her troubles started after she was seen by the CCTV Camera control room at Gulu Central Police Station as she was performing her usual sorcerous act.
According to David Ongom Mudong the Aswa River Region Police Spokesperson, the police patrol had on several occasions responded to Kaunda Ground following a tip-off from the CCTV Camera control room to arrest Auma as she was performing her usual sorcerous act, but they would instead find a dog on the exact spot.
However, they finally managed to arrest Auma on Sunday 7th at around 8 pm while naked, just a few meters from the Gulu Main Prison’s premises.
Auma who is currently detained at Gulu Central Police Station will be examined under Police Form 24 to determine her mental wellbeing and once she is found to be mentally healthy, she will be charged with being a Public Nuisance.
