Police have arrested three of their very own for allegedly guarding an illegal music concert that took place on Saturday night at the Ddungu Resort, Munyonyo in Kampala.
According to Patrick Onyango, the spokesperson Kampala Metropolitan Police, the police officers who have been arrested include Fabiano Juma, John Bosco Ocaba and Paul Odongo.
Onyango said that the concert organisers connived with the area police officers including the three officers to provide security for the event.
He adds that the arrested officers and three others still at large are also being investigated for disobeying lawful orders.
The police officers were arrested alongside six civilians who organized or attended the concert.
Onyango says the suspects include a Nigerian artiste Stanley Omah Didia alias Omah Lay, artiste Temilade Openyi alias Tems, Muyiwa Awomiyi (Temilade’s manager).
Others are; Benjamin Kabura, Ivan Ddungu, the manager of the place where the concert was held, and Prim Kasana, the event manager, who contracted Omah to perform at the concert.
The nine suspects are currently detained at Katwe Police Station for holding a concert in violation of ministry of health guidelines and thereby doing acts that are likely to cause the spread of infectious disease, which is Corona virus.
