Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulany alias Bobi Wine has reportedly been arrested and is being detained at Naggalama Police Station.

The Singer was summoned by Police to appear and record statement at the CID headquarters in Kibuli today, Monday, on allegations of inciting violence.

However, as Bobi was driving to Kibuli, he was joined by his followerswho chaned the slogan ‘People Power, Our Power’ hence paralyzing traffic in some parts of the city. As a result, police responded in pursuit of sanity on the road and intercepted the crown at Kalerwe and was forced to fire teargas and bullets to restore.

According to Bobi Wine’s lawyer, Asuman Basalirwa, Bobi has been arrested and taken to Naggalama Police Station. “Bobi wine has been brought and put in police cell, his shoes and money were iven oto me, we are waiting to see what unfolds” says the Lawyer.

The lawyer also said that is not yet clear why police arrested the legislator whom they had summoned to record a statement.  “I don’t know whether police is no longer interested in having him record statement at the CID headquarters in Kibuli. Reasons for his arrest aren’t known to us and no officer is willing to speak to us about”.

Police deployed heavily at and around  Naggalama where Bobi Wine has been detained.
