OYAM – National Unity Platform (NUP) presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has attacked police for arresting their party members, including Deputy President in charge of Northern Uganda Dr. Lina Zedriga Waru, as he campaigned in Oyam District on Thursday, 12 November 2020.
According to Bobi Wine, Dr Zedriga was arrested and locked in a cell of male inmates at Lolo police station.
“In Oyam, after a massive reception, the RPC of this region, one Nkore Paul could not stomach it. He arrested Deputy President in charge of Northern Uganda Dr. Lina Zedriga Waru and several other comrades and detained them at Lolo police station. They are all detained in a small crowded cell. Moreover she is detained in the same cell with men,” Bobi Wine posted.
“Earlier, the officer in charge of Oyam police station, one Tumwine used excessive force, beating up and arresting our people. I have told Mr. Nkore and Mr. Tumwine to act professionally and remember that they are not the first and they will not be the last. The system they are dying to protect in Lango Sub-region will soon be history and they will need to live in a Uganda which is free for all,” he added.
This comes after Bobi Wine was on Wednesday blocked from campaigning in Kitgum District, with police accusing him of having a big crowd.
