Police Officers Filmed Brutalising Handcuffed Suspect Arrested
By Melanie Aanyu,
Three police officers captured in a video brutalising a man in Ibuje Town Council, Apac District, have been arrested.
The victim is a truck driver with Sadeem Al-Kuwait General Trading and Contracting Company that was contracted to upgrade the Rwenkunye- Apac Road.
He reportedly had a disagreement with Caesar Meghila, an administrator at the same company, which resulted into a confrontation. Consequently, the company brought in police personnel to calm the situation but they ended up arresting and brutalising the suspect.
In the video clip that went viral on social media, three police officers were seen administering Mumbere with an overdose of punches and kicks.
An employee of Sadeem Al Kuwait who preferred not to be named for fear of reprimand, said that the victim had been sacked from his job after getting involved in a road accident in central Uganda recently.
He returned to claim for compensation for the expenses he incurred when he was arrested over the accident.
