The territorial Police at Kira Division and Kiwologoma Police Station have arrested Amusolo Nancy for torturing her one-and-a-half-year-old child, Nasike Betty.
The case was reported by the child’s father Imme Denis Joshua, a 32-year-old farm manager residing in Bulindo Kira, Wakiso District.
According to Denis, the suspect burnt the child on February 6, 2023, citing frustration over the father’s absence and lack of support.
ASP Luke Owoyesigyire the Deputy PRO KMP says that the couple had separated in December and Amusolo was staying with a friend when the incident took place.
The victim is currently receiving treatment for the injuries sustained.
The suspect is in custody at Kira Division Police, and investigations are ongoing.
“The Kampala Metropolitan Police condemns such acts of torture on children and continuously urges the public to report any cases of child abuse or neglect to the authorities for prompt action,” says Owoyesigyire.
