Former Central Police Station DPC Aron Baguma has Tuesday handed himself in at Buganda Road Magistrates Court.

He was charged with murder, aggravated robbery and remanded to Kigo Prison until September 1, 2016.

Baguma appeared before Grade One Magistrate Joan Acio today afternoon in relation to the alleged killing of businesswoman Betty Katusabe at Pine car bond in Kampala on October 21, 2015.

The magistrate read for him the charges, did not allow him to take plea but quickly remanded him to Kigo prison.

Baguma will return to court tomorrow September 1 along with other suspects who are on remand for the mention of the case.

They include car dealer and proprietor of the car bond, Muhammed Ssebuwufu, Godfrey Kayiza, a private security guard, Philip Mirambe, a Congolese national, Stephen Lwanga, a businessman and one Paul Tasingika.

Ever since Baguma was indicted by the DPP in December last year, police authorities refused to surrender the commander.

He was promoted to another rank in February, but was removed from command recently and sent on training.

The DPP had in a July 21 letter given the police 10 days to charge Baguma, but the police feigned knowledge of the DPP’s directive sent to CID director Grace Akullo.

Baguma’s troubles stem from an October 21, 2015, incident where he reportedly looked on as car dealer Ssebuwufu led assault against Katusabe, ordering her to pay him a Shs9 million debt.
