Court seating in Gulu, chaired by Grade one Magistrate Christine Turibamwe has today charged and remanded Gulu University Dean of Students Christopher Mwetwage Mpore to Gulu civil prison over theft of shs 3m.
Christopher was charged with three counts of forgery, theft and uttering out false documents.
According to police, Christopher started a petrol Station with his colleague Mildred Anena Alou and the pair opened up a joint bank account in Centenary Bank.
Court documents seen by spyreports show that on June 15, 2020, at Centenary Bank in Gulu, Mpora knowingly and fraudulently uttered a false document to wit a forged Centenary Bank Gulu branch withdrawal form of cash 3,550,000 Shillings in the names of Goma Oil Ginnery, and that he stole the money belonging to Mildred Anena Alou.
Mpora and Anena opened a joint business of a petrol station called Goma Oil Ginnery, in Koch-Goma sub county in Nwoya district.
He allegedly withdrew the money fraudulently by forging Anena’s signature.
After Anena learnt that Mpora forged her signature and withdrew money from their joint account without her consent, she opened up a case against him and police later arrested him on various charges.
He was later released on bond, which he jumped. “This man pleaded with us to release him on bond claiming he was sick and needed a treatment.
When he went out, he never came back to report,” says Police Officer in Gulu.
Police says on Wednesday, he was seen in Gulu town heading to Kampala.
“Police rushed and arrested him before fleeing the place,” says another police officer adding that he was taken to Court on Thursday.
Mpora however pleaded not guilty for all three counts and applied for bail.
Christine Turibamwe, the Gulu Grade One Magistrate denied him bail and remanded him to Gulu central prison until April 15 when he will again appear before the court.
