Ugandan security team in Bududu district has arrested an opposition supporter belonging to Bobi over explosives.
According to reports, Mr Nobert Ariho was arrested after he appeared in the video when an explosion occurred near NUP presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine during campaign.
Mr Ariho was picked by police officers and driven whisked shortly after Bobi Wine’s campaign rally in Bududa District.
Bobi Wine supporters protested police action, demanding for his release but the police fired teargas to disperse them.
‚ÄúEven when clear evidence came out showing that our comrade Nobert Ariho never threw the grenade that nearly killed us, as alleged by police, they have gone ahead and arrested him violently, bundled him onto a police truck and drove him to an unknown destination! The same police officer called Asiimwe, who continues to follow us and cause mayhem commandeered his arrest! Definitely they are so ashamed of themselves and simply want to prove a point! We are aware of their plan to arrest, torture and detain many more people that I work with until after elections. Too bad for them, Uganda is far ahead of them!‚ÄĚ the presidential aspirant, Bobi Wine said.
On Tuesday when Bobi Wine had gone for campaigns in Kayunga, a scuffle ensued before an explosion happened near Bobi Wine’s car.
During the scuffle, some people, including his security guard were left with injuries.
A section of social media users accused Ariho of being behind the explosion.
