In a troubling incident, the Iganga Central Police Station is actively pursuing Fred Ntalo, a teacher at Buyubu Primary School, for alleged defilement of a primary five pupil. The suspect fled when confronted by the girl’s parents during their school visit.
The headteacher of Buyubu Primary School, David Kufabulala, brought attention to the case, revealing that staff members informed him of the distressing incident involving a 14-year-old pupil. Expressing concern over a growing trend, residents in Busoga East region highlight numerous unregistered defilement cases involving teachers.
Fred Ntalo, the accused teacher, is now a fugitive on the run. According to Abubaker Kasadakawo, the Iganga District education officer, Ntalo organized deceptive weekend lessons for primary six pupils to facilitate inappropriate meetings with the victim, unbeknownst to the school management.
Kasadakawo condemned Ntalo’s behavior, urging parents to promptly report any such incidents to the nearest police station. In response to this disturbing development, the community and education officials united in their call for increased vigilance and immediate reporting of any suspicious activities affecting students.
The Iganga Police are calling on anyone with information about Fred Ntalo’s whereabouts to come forward and assist in the ongoing investigation.
