The MP says Police had no reason to arrest the residents over the land which had been handed to them through a court ruling by Charles Wako, the Kisoro Grade Two Magistrate in November last year.

On night fall, the MP declined to leave the police station and indeed spent the night there until in the wee hours of the morning when the suspects were released on police bond.
