Police in Wakiso district has taken into their custody the Busiro East Parliamentary candidate Emmanuel Matovu Magoola for defying Electoral commission orders on holding processions or convoys during nominations.
Matovu is seeking to unseat Medard Lubega Sseggona 2021 general polls after losing to him in the 2016 elections.
The defiant aspirant reportedly stormed the EC offices in a colorful way with hundreds of his supporters and cars.
Police first allowed Matovu Magoola to finalize with the exercise and after he was duly nominated by Wakiso district Returning Officer Tolbert Musinguzi, they swung into action.
The Officer in Charge of Wakiso Police Station Joseph Kamukama ordered Matovu not to return to his home in the same convoy which he vehemently refused.
This led the police officers to grab him forcefully and drag him through the staircase of the EC offices all the way to their Police Patrol Pick-up truck.
The police drove off leaving his fuming supporters cursing and ranting at the way their candidate was manhandled.
