WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENED.
According to the CCTV footage released by Victoria University management on Friday morning indicated not less than eight plain clothed security operatives arrest Muganga from his office but also manhandled Constable Barbara Nagudi, the female Counter Terrorism police officer attached to him.
The social media have since condemned security for the manner the arrest was carried out but also manhandling their comrade in arms.
Speaking shortly after his release, Dr.Muganga joined the other Ugandans in blasting security on how the arrest was made.
“She is quite an amazing person trying to do her job. You are 10 people, see someone well dressed in her uniform and you choose to fight her! If there is, these people should be subjected to training,”Dr.Muganga said in attacks aimed at the Chieftaincy of Military Intelligence.
He however said he was happy with the way the counter terrorism police officer protected her during the scuffle of the arrest.
