Obongi County MP Hon Hassan K Fungaroo (FDC) says he was allegedly beaten by ruling NRM party supporters, Saturday night.
He was then picked by police and detained but released at midnight.
The Area DPC, Abel Ruganza told Daily Monitor that Fungaroo’s detention was aimed at guaranteeing his safety.
FDC said Fungaroo who also doubles as FDC Deputy National Mobilization Secretary was attacked in Aliba subcounty Obongi District by goons donned in yellow T-Shirts and Police officers.
Hon Fungaroo was arrested by the same team though locals piled pressure as they stormed Obongi CPS in very huge numbers demanding that their person be release unconditionally dead or alive, else they were ready to die in defense of their Member of Parliament.
Hon Fungaroo was released and was taken by his supporters taken to the nearby clinic for medical management.
“The FDC condemns such acts intended to kill, maim and or disable our candidates by Mr. Museveni and his agents,” the party said.
