The most wanted man by police in Soroti over an acid attack on his girlfriend, Andrew Francis Obirai, has handed himself to police early this morning.
Obirai was subsequently detained and is set to appear in court later today, according to the district police commander, Joab Wabwire.
“We have prepared his file and we have preferred charges of attempted murder against him,” DPC Wabire told the press in police.
Obirai is accused of pouring acid on the face of his girlfriend, Dorothy Atim, a sales executive with Vision Group in September before he went on the run.
Atim is admitted at Mulago referral hospital where she is getting treatment.
When police paraded Obirai before the press, he turned violent and nearly fought journalists until police intervened.
“These people have been writing negative stories about me why do you allow them to take my pictures?” Obirai shouted as the DPC held him shielding him from grabbing the camera of New Vision Journalist.
