Former MP Aspirant Paul Owor Accused of Fraud and Issuing Fake Land Titles

UGANDA, Kampala | Real Muloodi News | Paul Owor, a former Busiro South MP aspirant, is facing allegations of involvement in land fraud, accused of selling the same plot of land to two different individuals and providing them with counterfeit land titles.

A gentleman has come forward, accusing Paul Owor of selling him a plot of land and subsequently selling the same piece of land to a lady just two days later.

Both individuals claim that they were handed fake land titles by Owor, which he allegedly forged at Nasser Road, a hub for printing services in Kampala.

This is not the first time Owor’s name has made headlines due to similar accusations. Because of these accusations, Paul Owor in the past was summoned to appear before the police on January 26, 2022.

He faced three charges of forgery and uttering false documents concerning the alleged fraudulent land transactions.

This is not the first time Owor’s name has made headlines due to similar accusations.

In 2021, Paul Owor was apprehended and put in custody at Central Police Station in Kampala, along with three others, on charges of extorting approximately USh77 million (US$22,000) from a Chinese businessman.

According to reports, Owor and his associates allegedly demanded money from the Chinese businessman, promising to secure the release of his colleagues who were detained on suspicion of producing counterfeit agrochemical products.

Mr Luke Owoyesigyire, the Kampala Metropolitan Police deputy spokesman, confirmed the arrest, stating, “Owor claimed that he was one of the top lawyers in Kampala City and could assist in securing the release of the Chinese businessman’s colleagues if he provided them with money to navigate the police system. However, their mission was unsuccessful.”

The details of the recent allegations are yet to be known.
