Inspector General of Police, Kale Kayihura’s convoy has been involved in an accident at Sipi corner in Kapchorwa district.
One officer is reported dead and five others injured after a motor accident at Towei Hill on Wednesday.
Kayihura was not in the convoy coming from Kapchorwa to Mbale.
The dead officer is a member of police flying squad team escorting Kayihura.

Kayihura was in Kapchorwa district where a police officer was chopped by panga-wielding thugs on Tuesday.
