Former Security Minister Lt Gen Henry Tumukunde, who was arrested Thursday evening and driven to CID headquarters in Kibuli, was later transferred to Special Investigations Unit in Kireka, his lawyer Alex Luganda reveals.
According to a police statement released on Friday morning, Gen Tumukunde was arrested at around 7pm by a joint security task team led by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations for alleged Treason.
Mr Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson says his premises at Kololo remain secured for further search this morning, for any additional evidence of material value.
“The arrest follows his utterances in a series of radio and television interviews, which seek to foster hatred that might lead to inter-community violence, fomenting and glorifying violence in general. He in addition, calls on the support of a neighboring country to support him in removing the current leadership with or without the ballot,” Mr Enanga said in a statement.
