The four suspects including Owor, Emmanuel Wandabwa, Anthony John Wapowo and Muketa Patel are currently detained at Jinja Police Station, Kampala following their arrest last week.
Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesman, Mr Luke Owoyesigyire said Owor is expected to appear in court tomorrow (May 19).
“The Resident State Attorney advised us to charge them with obtaining money by false pretence. Their file has been sanctioned and they will appear in court on Wednesday,” Mr Owoyesigyire said.
It is alleged that Owor and his accomplices extorted money from a Chinese businessman promising to secure the release of his colleagues detained on allegations of manufacturing fake agro-chemical products.
