SOROTI CITY

 

Police has spoken out on a company that has allegedly defrauded hundreds of Teso residents in a phony Bajaj lending scheme.

 

Speaking to the Media yesterday, 5th October 2021, the Police Spokesperson, East Kyoga, ASP Ageca Oscar Gregory said police was trailing the Savanah Motors directors who locked up their offices located at Pamba Ward in Soroti City West opposite Soroti Municipal Secondary School and vanished into thin air.

 

Ageca also revealed that the company was being managed by a one John Abachi who hails from Budaka district. He added that Abachi ran this company and signed agreements with different locals from Teso to supply them with motorcycles upon payment of Shs500, 000 then later on continue paying weekly or monthly respectively.

 

“The motorcycles were to be given out on 04th, Oct, 2021 but till today, their offices are locked up, but we as police shall continue with our investigations and those caught will be held accountable and arraigned before the courts of law,” he said.

 

He further called upon those defrauded not to attack any of the employees of that company.

 

“Anyone with any information that can help us should reach out to us in Soroti CPS or call toll free 112 or 999 to aid in the investigations,” he added.

 

It should be noted that on Wednesday 29th, September, 2021, the RCC of Soroti City, Peter Pex Paak ordered for the arrest of one of the company directors after a source informed him that the company was defrauding money from the locals.

 

However, after interrogation, the director said they came to Soroti some time back where they reached out to the division offices to get licenses that allowed them to operate legally and promised to bring the first batch of motorcycles that were to be given to the registered locals.

 

The director was later on taken to CPS where he was to be detained up to Monday 04th when the motorcycles were to be brought but the police raised concern that since there wasn’t anyone following up on the issue by then, there wasn’t any reason of detaining the director as it would have also been against his human rights and was later on released.

 

By press time, the Savannah office was still locked with only a banner, plastic chairs, table and hand washing facility inside.
