The West Nile region police spokesperson, Ms Josephine Angucia, claimed that AK-47 guns, a pistol, 15 phones, six red T-shirts, 46 white tablets in a tin labelled extra were recovered during a security search at Pacific Hotel in Arua Town where Bobi Wine and other opposition MPs were staying for the campaigns for Arua Municipality parliamentary by-election.
“While searching the rooms of Kyagulanyi at around midday on Tuesday, the security team found a small bag containing 15 phones, a GPS reader, SMG rifles, six red T-shirts and other items. Kassiano Wadri was also arrested and found with a pistol with 12 rounds of ammunition,” Ms Angucia said.
However, according to Mr Luiji Candia, the owner of Pacific Hotel, the security personnel looted all rooms, stole money, laptops of guests and many other valuables.
“These people (security operatives) did not get any gun here. They should be ashamed of telling lies to the public that they got guns here. If they got the guns from somewhere, they should tell the public instead of blaming our hotel,” Mr Candia said.
According to Gen Ali, Kyagulanyi is at Gulu hospital where he is receiving treatment. Other 3 MPs will appear before the Chief Magistrate tomorrow in Gulu and over 33 people were arrested.
