Police in Kampala have arrested Paul Owor, the former Busiro South MP aspirant for allegedly extorting US$22,000(about shs77 million) from a Chinese businessman.

Earlier this week, police arrested three people over the sale of unregistered and expired-agro chemicals Bi Jing Lmi(Chinese), Gilbert Afimani and Wilson Bamulanzeki.

However, after trio’s arrest, it is alleged that Paul Owor presented himself as one of the best lawyers in Kampala and together with his accomplices, they asked for money from the Chinese businessman so as to secure his release.

It is also alleged that the Chinese businessman paid US$22,000 to Owor’s group but it turned out they had conned him since they never secured his release from police detention.

“When the group was pressurised to secure the Chinese businessman’s release or refund the money, they brought themselves to police and admitted to have taken money to secure the release. We then arrested them,” Kampala Metropolitan deputy police spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigyire said.
