Police has shortly arrested and detained eight people who were among the bigger women protest group that stormed police headquarters in nagulu with three coffins, placards to meet the inspector general of police Martin Okotho Ochola over the women kidnaps and murders.
The arrested and shortly detained at Jinja road police station include Godiva Akullo, Twasiima Patricia, Obed Derrick, Habib Buwembo, Musiika David, Hashim Hamis and the FDC women’s league spokesperson Sarah Eperu some which were carrying coffins while others tied their mouth with masking tape.
The ladies were speaking on top of their voices donning black t shirts with words like women’s lives matter, police protect women and stop the kidnaps.
These have been dodging arrest of the heavy deployment by running into, hiding and organizing from uganda Human Rights commission central offices where the over 50 police officer deployed to deter the group guarded the entrance of the police headquarters.
There has also been a bitter exchange of words between the deputy spokesperson of police Patrick Onyango and Sarah Eperu as regards the activity.
Onyango pleaded with Eperu to allow both delegated parties agree on another well stipulated date and time for meeting the IGP since he too was very willing to meet them but wouldn’t due to his tight schedule.
However later on police and women protest group agreed to meet with in three days to discuss the women murders and kidnaps and police to immediately release those arrested.
This has been reached on between the protest group lawyer Lilian Drabo Lilian and the personal assistant to IGP Fred Mulondo at the police headquarters.
