However, the police rounded them up before they could go any further, arrested them and remanded them at the police station.

Godfrey Ninsiima, the district police commander told journalists that the UPDF soldiers were arrested because they engaged in an irregular activity.

“We have the six soldiers in our custody because we could not just look on as they engage in irregular activities in the area,” Ninsiima noted.

Army spokesperson, Lt Col Paddy Ankunda, has said the arrested soldiers will answer for their actions as individuals and not as UPDF.

“We do not entertain any acts that break the laws of the country,” Ankunda said.

It should be noted however that several wrangles have increased to go on between Abdul Nadduli and Kampala University under Prof. Badru Katerega over the land that is occupied by the university.
