City Hajji Drags Lecturer To Police Over ID
A city Hajji, who is a popular businessman has dragged one of the top Lecturers in town to Old Kampala Police Station, accusing him of allegedly confiscating his national identity card.
Hassan Wasswa, a resident of Nabbingo, claims he lost his ID after he was allegedly duped that it was going to be verified. He accuses Dr. Richard Sembatya, a university lecturer, of being behind the disappearance of his ID.
“I was forced to surrender my National ID when they told me that they were going to verify it. However, attempts to recover my ID have remained futile and I am worried it could be used by wrong people to commit crimes and thereafter I get implicated” he claimed,” the Hajji Wasswa told our Snoops.
As result of this, Wasswa went to Old Kampala Police Station and reported the matter vide file number SD.62/12/06/2017. Wasswa alleges that he and the lecturer were once close pals but recently when they developed misunderstandings over a lady who was his fiancée. He claims that at one point, he introduced his fiancée to his hitherto friend but the friend instead allegedly hooked the lady. “When I learnt about it, I asked our close friend Engineer Iga Steven to organize a reconciliation meeting so that things would not get out of hand. The meeting materialized and I decided to leave the woman for him,” he said. He however, added that “One evening, Iga allegedly called me to Jacaranda Recreation in Rubaga purportedly to meet Sembatya and his lawyer.” It was there that he alleges that he was presented with some documents for him to sign, much as he didn’t know what they were all about, since he is illiterate.
“Up to now, I have not received my ID and have no idea what was contained in the documents I signed. I appeal to the police to help me recover my ID and also take action against those individuals. The sooner the authorities act the better, because I am living in a lot of fear,” he lamented. He even posted this fury on his facebook page, although his alleged tormentors are yet to respond and our efforts reach the lecturer for a comment by press time were futile. Watch the space!
