Jinja — Jinja Police Child Family Protection Unit is investigating circumstances under which a girl, aged 8, got involved in romantic relationships with her female age mates.
Ms Catherine Wobuyaga, the officer in charge of Child Family Protection Unit said the minor is in police custody.
The minor told the police that she has been involved with fellow girls, most of whom are her class mates.
The engagements, she said have been happening in school toilets and other isolated places near her home.
Ms Wobuyaga said the girl whose name cannot be disclosed because she is a minor, was reported to police by a concerned neighbour who allegedly saw her repeatedly luring her friends to a nearby farm where she reportedly teaches them how to romantically get involved.
It is alleged that the girls would demonstrate to various sexual acts using her fingers.
Police say they are investigating claims that someone could have trained the girl and instructed her to pass on the knowledge to her age mates.
Ms Wobuyaga said parents should watch out for adults who lure underage children into "illicit relationships".
