Eight out of the 12 people who were last week found chained inside Pastor Geoffrey Ssemwogerere’s church in Seguku have been handed over to Butabika National Referral Hospital.
The police raided Pr. Ssemwogerere’s Church at Seguku Cell V after a tipoff from the locals that people had been chained inside.
Upon reaching the premises, police discovered 12 people chained and later established they were over 50 but many had earlier escaped.
Four of the persons who were rescued from the chains proved that they were never sick but were forcefully dragged into the church after their money and document for their property like the land had been confiscated by the Pastor and his team.
However, the other eight whose relatives had not appeared to explain how they ended up being chained at Pr Ssemwogerere’s church consistently showed signs of mental illness and were taken to Butabika hospital.
SSP Patrick Onyango, the Kampala Metropolitan Police Spokesperson, confirmed that they had safely been transferred to Butabika National referral hospital for better medical care and safety. SSP Onyango speaking…..
