The Police in Soroti have re-arrested Peter Ebau, the LCIII Chairman of Awaliwal Sub County.

Ebau who was first arrested on May 19, 2024, was released on Police Bond after presenting a birth certificate indicating that the girl whom he allegedly defiled and impregnated was above 18 years.

But Ebau’s freedom was short-lived after investigations indicated that the birth certificate had been forged. The document had purportedly been issued by the catholic church in Katakwi District. 

The Parish Priest of St. Pancras Toroma Catholic Church, Rev. Fr. Edmond Okela said that the birth certificate that the church issued indicating the girl’s date of birth in 2008 had been tampered with and the year amended to 2005. 

The Police officers who initially indicated that they were still investigating the matter arrested Ebau on Wednesday afternoon and arraigned him in court. 

The officer in charge of criminal investigations in Soroti district, Tom Richard Ojok told our reporter that the suspect had been paraded in court.

“He has been on police bond and when he reported today, we had him rearrested and produced to court since his file is ready,” Ojok said on the phone.

Although our reporter saw Ebau being escorted to Soroti Prison, we couldn’t verify the charges that have been preferred against him. But the Soroti City West Police Commander, Mohammed Rashid Byanzi told one of the journalists in Soroti that Ebau will be returning to court on Friday.
