Girl found virgin after faking own kidnap and claiming she was gang raped

Doreen Nanyombi, a resident of Bujuuko Trading Center, Muduuma Sub-county reportedly made several phone calls to her father, Mr David Kazibwe, claiming she had been kidnapped by four men

Police in Mpigi District have arrested a 15-year-old girl for allegedly faking own kidnap to extort money from her father.

Doreen Nanyombi, a resident of Bujuuko Trading Center, Muduuma Sub-county reportedly made several phone calls to her father, Mr David Kazibwe, claiming she had been kidnapped by four men, who were asking for a Shs 30 million ransom last Saturday.

The officer in charge of Bujuuko Police Station, Mr Emmy Nuwagira, said Mr Kazibwe alerted police after Nanyombi showed up and his home.

When asked where she had been, she reportedly told her father that she had escaped from her kidnappers.

“The father told us (police) that his daughter was found at their home yesterday saying she was in pain after being gang raped by her alleged kidnappers. When asked where she had been held and who the kidnappers were, she failed to explain,” Mr Nuwagira told journalists.

He said residents encouraged the father to report the matters to police and record a statement for further investigations.

Upon interrogated, detectives say Nanyombi’s statements were not coordinated and police decided to take her to Nyange Health Center for medical examination. Medical test indicated that she had never engaged herself in sexual intercourse in her life.

“The doctor’s report showed that she was still virgin and had no injury on her body,” Mr Nuwagira said.

However, the girl later admitted that she had faked her own kidnap because she wanted money to start up her own business.

“I was tired of staying at home. So, I wanted dad to give me money to go somewhere and start a new life,” Nanyombi is quoted in a police statement she made.

She is currently detained at Bujuuko Police Station for giving false information and staging own kidnap which incited the public.

Kidnaps have been on the rise in the last four months with many people losing their lives and others injured. However, police say most of the cases registered are fake.
