Bobi Wine has disclosed that heavily armed men in plain clothes have this morning invaded the home of his big brother, Chairman Fred Nyanzi.
In a Facebook post, Bobi Wine says the men who were travelling in a ‘drone’ seemed to have spent the night outside Nyanzi’s home and when he opened his gate in the morning, three men immediately entered his compound and pretended to be casual labourers looking for work.
“Nyanzi sensing danger after seeing pistols wrapped around their waists found a way of escaping from them. More men who totaled to about eight entered with big guns and started asking for his whereabouts,” narrates Bobi Wine.
He explains that the gun men put everyone in the house under gunpoint and forced all family members including Nyanzi’s wife to lie on the ground facing down as they asked for Nyanzi’s whereabouts.
However, their efforts almost did not yield anything but they left taking with them Nyanzi’s adopted son Happy Mugisha.
“This intimidation of our people must stop. But it will not stop by itself. It is us who must put it to an end,” he says.
The incident comes at a time when Bobi Wine has decried the continued abduction and torture of his supporters by security operatives.
