The Uganda Police Force has staked Shs20 million as a reward to any individual who can identify a mischievous man whose image was recently captured by CCTV cameras.
The man is alleged to be behind the circulation of threatening letters and other messages to the business community in Kampala Metropolitan Areas. He said to be using the bad language as a means to get money from his targets.
According deputy police spokesman Patrick Onyango, letters or messages were allegedly written and circulated by a group calling themselves ‘People’s agency’.
He said the investigations into the matter were still on ongoing. “We would like to appeal to the general public to positively identify for us the criminal in this photograph as he is the man behind the threatening letters to the business community,” he said.
According to Onyango, the unidentified man and his criminal gang are demanding money in foreign currencies ranging from US$ 30,000 to US $ 45,000 which they say must be given to them within three months.
Police has appealed to whoever has any information that may lead to his arrest and prosecution to the nearest police station or ring telephone numbers 0712827702, 0702436325, 0702415982, 0715411689.
