He is jointly charged with 5 UPDF soldiers including Sgt. Yunus Lemeriga, CPL Rogers Mwiru, Sgt. Adams Mawa, Sgt. Albino Okenge and Private DdodolaIjosiga.

Kipoi is also accused of attempting to traffic 20 people from Bukedea district to the DR.  Congo.

Kipoi was extradited from Botswana at the end of February 2018 where he had fled up on jumping bail in earlier treason case.

In Botswana authorities apprehended him for pretending to be a witch doctor and defrauding natives of millions of money.
