A 20 year old man has been arrested by police in Namutumba for allegedly defiling a 5 month-old baby.
The suspect has been named as Ali Woila a resident of Bumegera village in Ivukula sub-county in Namutumba district.
The Busoga East Police spokesperson James Mubi says the suspect is said to have been misled by traditional healers that he would get riches if he played sex with such a minor.

He says the suspect will be charged with aggravated defilement.
