Anjuleta Lalam, a 58-year-old woman and resident of the area, said that she was manipulated to sign an agreement. She says Oyet now forcefully wants to evict her and take control of the 295 acres of land she is living on.
The demonstration relates to the protracted confusion in the sale of 10,000 hectares of land for the establishment of Madhvani Sugar Factory in 2017. The surveyed land belonged to 209 households in the areas of Kololo, Omee, Pailyech, Lwak Obito, Lujoro and Bana villages in Amuru Sub-county.
The arrested persons were all found in a bar at around 8:30 p.m, on Sunday, in total disregard of guidelines that maintained restrictions on the business. At the time of the swoop, none of the arrested persons had a face mask, yet still, they paid no attention to social distancing requirements.
Aswa river region police Spokesperson Jimmy Patrick Okema however, admitted that police hierarchies discovered numerous gaps and weaknesses depicted by Amuru police personnel during the community policing program.
