Police have today raided offices of the National Unity Platform (NUP) in Jinja District in eastern Uganda.

NUP spokesperson, Joel Ssenyon said an office attendant and one of the party coordinators had been arrested during the raid.

Kiira Region police spokesperson, Abbey Ngako told our reporter that the raid on the offices located on Main Street in the centre of Jinja City was in line with section 169 and 170 of the Penal Code Act.

According to Ngako, the operation was intended to recover military related attires which were in possession of members of NUP led by aspiring presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as Bobi Wine.

Ngako said that the Penal Code bars any civilian from possessing military related equipment or attires.

Ngako was however non-committal on the number of people arrested and items recovered at NUP offices during the morning raid.

The Jinja security raid comes a day after a 70-year-old tailor in Buikwe District was arrested alongside nine other people on similar charges.

The woman identified as Ms Florence Namuddu, a tailor in Lugazi Municipality was found in possession of a piece of red clothes.
