Police in Tororo are holding Isaac Okadapao, the Gombolola Internal security officer (GISO) for Mella Sub County in Tororo for allegedly assaulting his mother.

Robert Katuramu, the Tororo District Police Commander said the victim identified as Christine Okadapao told police that the suspect stormed her home in Mella at about 2:00am on Saturday morning and demanded that she open the house.

She said when she opened, her son started beating her up without explaining why. The suspect also destroyed household property like glasses, chairs, plates and cups. She said she made an alarm that alerted the suspects' brothers who run to her rescue.

Okadapao fled and went into hiding.

Okadapao reappeared in the area on Monday morning. Concerned family members and neighbours then arrested him and handed him over to Mella police post before he was transferred to Tororo Central Police station.

He said the suspect will face charges of malicious damage to property and physical assault.

Katuramu described the character of the suspect as a disgrace to the security circle which might lead to his dismissal.

Micheal Odongo, the Bukedi Regional Police Spokesperson, says Okadapao has been in court on three separate occasions over assault and attempted rape.

He says the suspect being held at Tororo central police station will appear in court any time on Tuesday.
