John Okwor, a catechist at All Saints Church in Lira is in trouble for forging a baptism certificate to increment a cop on defilement.
Okwor was picked up last evening and detained at Lira Central Police station.
He is accused of conniving with Sylvia Akullo, to forge a baptism certificate reducing the age of her 21-year-old daughter to 14-years of age to implicate her son in law for defilement.
Henry Alyanga, the Central North Police Spokesperson says that trouble for Akullo started when her daughter who was married to cop broke up early this month.
He says that Akullo hatched a plan to implicate the cop, whose identity has been withheld for defilement.
Alyanga says that Akullo approached Okwor to help her forge a baptism certificate indicating that her daughter was 14-years-old yet she is 21-years-old.
He says that Okwor produced the baptism certificate which was presented to Police as evidence of the girl's age.
Alyanga says that Akullo was immediately arrested for forgery when she presented the baptism card at Lira Central Police station.
Edwin Tumugumye, Lira Criminal Investigations Officer says the suspects will be charged with forgery, giving false information and uttering false document.
He says that the arrest will serve as deterrent to parents who report false cases of defilement to extort money from men.
In December 2009 Akullo reported the same cop at Lira Police station for eloping with her daughter.
She was given shillings 14,000, a cow, goat and chicken as per the Langi culture.
