Jinja Road Police have arrested the Development Channel Director as he planned to flee the country after allegedly conning millions of cash from unsuspecting Ugandans.
The 44-year-old British Nigerian Charles Lambert was arrested Tuesday evening for a second time in a period of four months on allegations of fleecing money from unsuspecting Ugandans in a grand scam deal.
Charles Nwabuikwu Lambert was first arrested on 23rd August 2018 by Kira Road Police as a result of angry employees from various transport companies trying to set ablaze one of the premises owned by Development Channel and also trying to lynch the Company Director Charles Nwabuikwu faulting him over their unpaid arrears.
Richard Kimuli Ssenoga the head of transporters told police that, Development Channel had since February 2018 hired a total of 63 PRADO SUVs to ferry various dignitaries around different parts of Uganda promising the owners daily income of Shs150,000.
Upon his first arrest Mr. Lambert paid a sum of Shs17 million and agreed to pay the remaining balance in a period of 2 months which he failed to adhere to hence accumulating to Shs213 million Uganda shillings as of 20th November 2018.
His arrest was sparked by a number of excuses fed to the angry creditors by the company director hence a response by Jinja Road Police to solve the concern.
Development Channel has been running a complex scheme under the guise of a poverty alleviation purporting to empower Africans with a lifetime payment in a ruse designed to defraud victims.
However, shock befell the aggrieved clients when they found out that the Bukoto based Development Channel Offices had been closed down and all properties sold out.
