THE Policeâ€™s anti-stock theft unit has arrested a 32-year-old Karimojong warrior suspected to be part of the group that stole animals in Otuke district.
Peter Logeli was arrested in Kotido district by forces pursuing a group of Karimojong who stole 22 head of cattle from Olilim sub-county, Otuke district.
Grace Ewiko, the unitâ€™s commander in Lira, said a butcher, to whom Logeli had sold some of the stolen animals, led them to Logeliâ€™s home in Panyangara parish, where he was arrested.
Ewiko said their investigation revealed that Logeli and three other warriors stole the cattle. They were armed with a gun and bow and arrows.
â€œWe are searching for the other three because we do not want people to go back to the camp due to such unlawful acts,â€ she said.
Lira district Police commander Richard Aruk Maruk said Logeli was taken to Lira Central Police under tight security because a mob in Olilim wanted to lynch him.
He will face charges of theft, he added.
