The Uganda police have released a statement clarifying on social media posts alleging girls being forced to train in bestiality acts.
Social media reports which went viral were indicating that 14 teenage girls had been rescued in a guest house alleging them to have been forced into bestiality acts which is not true according to the evidence from police.
According Kampala Metropolitan Deputy Police Spokesperson, Asp Luke Owoyesigyire, 14 teenage girls had been rescued from a suspected human trafficker at a guest house in Muyenga, Makindye Division, and Kampala.
‘‘It is true 14 girls were rescued from a guest house in Muyenga , after a whistle blower at the guest house got concerned that the care taker Ndagire was making the girls share the same room and bed with the puppies.’’ Owoyesigyire said in the statement
‘‘I need to clarify on the URN story which was misrepresented by the reporter, who alleges police rescued girls doing unnatural acts with dogs.’’ He added
The fact is that the concerned citizen also said that the girls were always seen moving with, and carrying the dogs all the time and this is the information that that led to the raid at the guest house.
However, Owoyesigyire said that there is no evidence that shows whether the girls were being forced to perform un natural acts/acts of bestiality with the dogs as alleged since it can only be ascertained with medical evidence
‘‘Any other evidence shall be ascertained as investigations proceed.’’ The statement reads.
Police further informed that the ‘‘rescued children are currently staying with a professional children’s home as police intensifies efforts to trace for their parents.’’
‘‘Police calls upon parents who could have willingly or unwillingly given their children to the said Ndagire-to follow up with Kabalagala Police,’’ he urged.
