Eddy Lugwire, the people power coordinator in Kigulu north constituency in Iganga district is out on police bond.  

He regained temporary freedom this morning following his arrest together with four others on Sunday night for allegedly staging an illegal rally at Bunyiiro primary school in Nakalama Sub County.

The other suspects are Monisa Kusasira, Ibrahim Kobula, Eria Sseko, and Dan Muliiko. Lugwire told journalists shortly after his release that he was attending youth celebrations when he was picked up.  

“Youth within Bunyiiro village invited me to join them for their annual end of year celebrations but I was shocked to see police officers arresting me,” he said.

 

Adding that, “Since we are never allowed to freely hold public gatherings, I can only air out my views during events and some of my supporters even invite us for night vigils where we address them,”.

  The Iganga District Police Commander, David Ndaula, says they released Bagwire and his co-accused because investigations are still ongoing.  

 

“Releasing him doesn’t mean that the case has been closed. The suspect shall continue reporting at CPS on a weekly basis as we prepare to produce him before courts of law, where he shall face charges of organizing an illegal assembly contrary to the requirements of the Public Order Management Act,” he said.
