The internal security organisation has bowed to pressure from the media fraternity and released The Investigator editor Stanley Ndawula.
Ndawula was kidnapped on Friday night from his Yaya Lounge hangout in Bukoto.
He says army men cornered him while escorting some customers.
“One of them put a gun on my stomach and said I was under arrest. They put me in the car and drove off,” Ndawula narrated.
He was driven to Kyengera where he had earlier said ISO operates a safe house, and locked up.
He says ISO blames him for a story published in an online website “Trumpet News” that was damaging to the security organisation.
He slept in jail on Saturday and was taken to the head of ISO Col Kaka Bagyenda on Sunday.
“I told him the story was not written by me or the investigator. I was later released.”
He says Kaka also apologised to him for the inconvenience.
Ndawula thanked the media fraternity for fighting for his rights.
He condemned security operatives for the manner in which they are arresting citizens and giving government a bad image.
