The private bodyguard of the National Unity Platform’s (NUP) presidential candidate Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert aka Bobi Wine is set to appear before Kayunga Grade one Magistrates Court.
Nobert Ariho was arrested in Bududa where Bobi Wine had conversed for support ahead of the 2021 general elections.
Ariho is averred to have thrown a teargas grenade at the presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi in Kayunga. During the scuffle, the security guard accorded to Mr. Kyagulanyi by the Electoral Commission (EC) only identified as Kato and music producer Dan Magic were injured.
According to the analyzed video footage captured by NBS TV, the canister was fired from a police patrol at the moment when Bobi interfaced with the officers who blocked him from campaigning in the Kayunga district.
