Police in Kaberamaido district have arrested a 32-year-old man on allegations of torturing his four-year-old son.

Robin Obang is detained at Kaberamaido Central Police Station cells after he was arrested by police following a tip off from the neighbours.  The incident happened at Aodi village, Olelai parish in Aperikira Sub County in Kaberamaido district.

Godfrey Abigaba, Kaberamaido District Police Commander says that Obang allegedly tortured his child accusing him of stealing food.

“When we as police heard a tip from neighbours through the local council committee on this kind of human rights abuse on a child, we swung into action and arrested the father,” Abigaba said.

Albin Ebulu, the area LCI Chairperson says they found the malnourished child with multiple scars all over the body, which prompted them to refer the matter to police for action.

However, Obang is reported to have told police that he acted out of ignorance because he was just trying to discipline his son.
