Kyadondo East MP, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has returned to the country after receiving medical treatment in the United States for injuries he says he received whilst in military detention.
Police immediately stopped him from leaving the airport and escorted him home – a move which Bobi Wine said is against his wishes.
In a statement issued by Police Spokesman, Emilian Kayima, Police say was “peacdully escorted to his residence in Magele, Wakiso District.”
“We wish to thank him for cooperating with Police at Entebbe International Airport that provided him with transport, escort and a lead car to his home,” Kayima said.
Police also deny allegations of journalists who were arrested, noting that no journalist is under arrest.
“Some of them were questioned in accordance with the set guidelines. All are free, going about their lawful business normally,” he said, advising Bobi Wine to “fully comply with the laws of the land and terms of his bail conditions.”
Earlier the police arrested several people who were trying to reach Entebbe Airport to welcome back the popular activist who is also a musician.
Along with 30 other people, Bobi Wine still faces charges of treason in connection with the alleged stoning of a vehicle in a presidential convoy.
