IGP Gen Kale Kayihura has said that the Force is holding Ms Ingrid Turinawe, the Forum for Democratic Change chief mobilizer who reportedly went missing on Saturday evening.
FDC party officials accused Uganda Police of kidnapping their controversial mobilizer. Several opposition leaders have either been arrested and detained by Police or put under house arrest since FDC called for country wide protests ahead of the May 12 presidential inauguration.
“Yes we have arrested her,” Kayihura said while addressing journalists at Police headquarters in Naguru Monday evening, “We have evidence she is involved in a number of crimes.”
The IGP also confirmed the arrest of FDC deputy secretary general, Harold Kaija who was arrested from party offices in Najanankumbi when they raided the premises a day later.
Kayihura warned the opposition against ‘crime’ assuring that the law will deal with them accordingly.
“Opposition figures should be law abiding, otherwise the law will catch up with them.” He warned.
He added that the arrests of key opposition figures like Dr.Kizza Besigye are a precautionary measure adopted by the force.
Police however didn’t go public on where Ingrid Turinawe and the others are detained.
