National Unity Platform (NUP) says its aspiring Speaker Thomas Bagonza has been abducted by armed men.
Bagonza Thomas was the NUP candidate for councilor seat Bwaise II, in Kawempe.
Police named him among the ringleaders of November 2020 Kampala riots.
Over the weekend, NUP leader Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine said more of his comrades had been abducted from different areas between 10th and 12th May.
“We are reliably informed that most of them are being held at CMI headquarters in Mbuya and being subjected to all manner of torture and humiliation,” he noted.
They include; Nuhu Sanya, Sebagala Gordon, Kasisi Richard, Lutaaya Olivia, Kalyango Muhamood, Munanyagwa Fred, Machete Yasin, Segujja Rashid, Kiweewa Evan Jordan, Mayiga Ronald and Nyombi Richard.
There is also a group who were picked up around Katanga in Wandegeya, and these include; Katumba Shiba, Kisakye Sam, Makanya Bernard, Katerega Dan, Sam Saka and Mafabi Steven.
“As our legal teams do their best to secure their release, we continue to condemn in the strongest terms possible, the blatant abuse of the law with impunity,” he said.
“Abducting innocent citizens and holding them in military cells and other illegal detention centers is not only illegal, but also a sign great cowardice. These are crimes against humanity which will be accounted for,” he added.
