Jinja city based artist, Ronald Bamukisa alias Top K has been arrested for alleged defilement and abduction.

Attendants at Green Summer bar and lodge in Jinja City Southern division rounded off Bamukisa on allegations of defiling a 13-year-old girl.

He however locked himself inside the bar, prompting the bar attendants to alert police officers, who forcefully opened the door and arrested him.

Bamukisa spent the night at Jinja central police station awaiting prosecution. The minor’s father, whose name has been withheld, says that Bamukisa was conducting music shows in Kayunga district, where he mobilized young girls to act as dancers.

It is revealed that parents entrusted him with their daughters but they became suspicious of his activities mid-last month when he started asking them to allow their children to conduct overnight rehearsals at his preferred location without supervision from female caretakers.

According to the father of the minor Bamukisa left Kayunga with his daughter on Friday without his authorization and only to be informed on Sunday that the two had been arrested from Green Summer lodge in Jinja city.

Bamukisa has since denied the allegations leveled against him, saying that he never had sexual intercourse with the minor. Kiira regional police spokesperson James Mubi, says that the victim has been thoroughly examined but details in the medical report have been reserved to avoid jeopardizing their investigations.

Bamukisa faces two counts of abduction and aggravated defilement.
