Kenyan tycoon robbed in Uganda and nearly lynced, has ‘escaped’ from hospital – Police

Omoro– A 39 year old Kenyan man who was robbed in northern Uganda district of Omoro on Sunday is reportedly missing from the hospital, where he was rushed for treatment.

Okie Emma was robbed of his Uganda shillings 95m and a motorcycle with registration number UEE 175Q.

The incident happened along Gulu-Opit road near Opit Central, Omoro district, eyewitness who preferred not to be named, told our reporter.


Beaten into coma after his vehicle, being driven by a Ugandan man identified as Ola Denis, the victim was first rushed to Lacor Health Centre III, from where he was soon transferred to Lacor Hospital for specialized management.

Police’s preliminary report reveals that the episode was a syndicate by Ola Denis, who survived unhurt, took off and has since gone missing.

Another source says Mr. Ola stopped the fuso truck, and soon the attackers emerged, punched his Kenyan boss, and took off with them “cash and a motorcycle.”

The “still at large Uganda suspect” was driving a fuso truck registration number KBB 188B.

“He was driving in a very bushy and dark place (road) where he stopped for a “short call” and soon two men well armed emerged from the bush and robbed them,” Jimmy Patrick Okema, the Aswa region police spokeperson told TND News, Monday.

“Okie was rushed to Lacor health center III Opit branch and later transfered to St Mary’s hospital Lacor for further treatment where he escaped from,” Okema added.

“His escape has sabotaged the entire investigation process into the matter,” he reveals
