Twitter money bags Paul Owor aka Hustle King known by many for spilling money around to fellow Ugandan tweeps has this evening been arrested after his long scam came to an end.
The former Busiro South MP Contestant was arrested over extortion of US$22,000 (about Ugx 77 million) from a Chinese businessman after promising to secure the release of his colleagues who were recently detained over allegations of manufacturing fake agro-chemical products.
The braggadocio “millionaire” and three others; Emmanuel Wandabwa, Anthony John Wapowo and Muketa Patel are currently held at CPS in Kampala.
According to Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesman, ASP Luke Owoyesigyire, “Owor claimed that he was one of the best lawyers in Kampala, assuring the Chinese Businessman that he would secure his colleague’s release if he gave them money they would use to beat the police system”.
Owor and his group attempted to secure the release of the suspects but failed. The Chinese businessman put them on pressure to refund the money or he uses tough measures to recover it. They had already spent part of the money,” Owoyesigyire added.
Owor refers to himself as an entrepreneur and financial coach.
